MICHELLE CANN, piano VERONA QUARTET - JONATHAN ONG and DOROTHY RO, violins, ABIGAIL ROJANSKY, viola, JONATHAN DORMAND, cello
The Verona Quartet has firmly established itself amongst the most distinguished ensembles on the chamber music scene today. The group’s singular sense of purpose earned them Chamber Music America’s coveted Cleveland Quartet Award, and a reputation for “bold interpretive strength, robust characterization and commanding resonance” (Calgary Herald). Pianist Michelle Cann is "technically fearless with…an enormous, rich sound” (La Scena Musicale). She is the recipient of the 2022 Sphinx Medal of Excellence and embraces a dual role as performer and pedagogue.
The music in this program combines different musical styles and influences to evoke vivid pictures in the listener’s mind. Whether through the play of light on water, the energy of dance and movement, the richness of cultural tradition, or the sense of motion and vitality, the music creates a world of images.
