Our March concerts are a good illustration of one aspect of diversity in our programing, the historical – the length of our reach in musical eras. Pianist David Jalbert plays J. S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations
, most famously associated in Canada with Glenn Gould, who recorded 2 very different interpretations. The Arditti Quartet offer an entirely contemporary music programme; the oldest work, an Elliot Carter quartet, dates from 1995 – almost 20 years ago, but not 300. That is one of the attractions of chamber music, that you can hear works representative of all the eras of western classical music.
