La Cafamore String Quartet will once again be playing at the Rossland gallery on Monday April 22.  The group has been touring the Kootenays since 2008 presenting high quality classical music.  

This particular concert will be the ensemble’s most ambitious undertaking to date.  George Crumb’s “Black Angels” is innovative, frightening and ethereal.  It is written for electric string quartet as well as “instruments” such as thimbles, gongs, paper clips, glass rods and crystal goblets.

Crumb’s work represents the classic struggle between good and evil, heaven and hell, paying homage to musical references from centuries gone by, and using such unconventional “instruments” as sewing thimbles and crystal goblets.  One of the references in Crumb’s work is to Schubert’s masterpiece “Death and the Maiden” a powerful story of beauty, death and loss.  An unforgettable evening of classical music awaits you.

The resulting sounds are indescribable- this is a concert not to be missed.

When: Monday April 22, 7:30 p.m.  

Where: Rossland Gallery  

Adults $15, Children/students: $10  Families: $45 

 Available at Bear Country Kitchen and at door
