Music & Truffles concerts for young people, Sundays, 1;15 p.m.

Sunday, February 3, 2013 – Dalí String Quartet – These celebrated graduates of Venezuela’s revolutionary El Sistema offer an enticing mix of traditional string quartet repertoire and Latin American chamber music that promises to take listeners on an eclectic journey of rhythm and sound. “Dalí has a big, lush sound. They captured the elegance and lightness of the Haydn quartet and did not have any difficulty in switching to the dissonant drama of one of Beethoven’s most stormy chamber music works.  As expected, they handled the Latin American music with  authoritative ease.” – The Morning Call (USA) 

Sunday, March 3 – Hung-Kuan ChenGold medal-winner of the 1991 Arthur Rubinstein Competition and a top winner in many other major competitions, plays the complete Chopin Preludes.  “One of the pianistic giants of our time” – Anton Kuerti.  “Once seated at the piano, his enormous presence is remarkable....transported his listeners into two-and-half hour long realm of musical ecstasy.” – Süddeutsche Zeitung

Sunday, April 28 – Pierrot Moonstruck: A Festival of Song, Piano Music, Poetry and Mime – An innovative and engaging program celebrates Commedia dell’arte’s Pierrot in “An Evolution of Character in Four Parts,” featuring music by Schumann, Chopin, Debussy, Ravel, Fauré and others, performed by soprano Allison Angelo (“A fabulous discovery” – Toronto Star), pianists Kathleen van Mourik and Charles Foreman, and mime Olga Primak.  “90 minutes of generally divine music-making” – Calgary Herald
