The St. Lawrence String Quartet performed in
April 5, 2006 at the Dominion Chalmers Church,
presented by the Ottawa Chamber Music
The concert was a standing-ovation success.
They played Hayden, Mozart, and Schumann,
but the tour de force was Shostakovich.
String Quartet No. 3 in F major, opus 73 (1946)
- a brilliant feat of precision and interpretation.
This is the last time Barry Shiffman played
with the quartet in Ottawa.
He has been appointed director of music programs by
The Banff Centre.
