Climb up into the attic and discover the astounding quartet that can translate paintings into… music!
Sebastian lives with his grandfather, who is a great admirer of Québec artist Guido Molinari. He has collected so many of Molinari’s paintings that the whole house is bursting, right up to the attic! Afraid that as he ages, his grandfather won’t be able to see Molinari’s bright colours, Sebastian decides invite three musicians to join him in the attic to help translate Molinari’s paintings into music.
Set against colorful video projections, this concert offers some keys to understanding and appreciating masterworks in the modern repertoire for string quartet. At the same time, audiences will discover one of Canada’s greatest painters.
