THE PENDERECKI STRING QUARTET creates performances that demonstrate their “remarkable range of technical excellence and emotional sweep” (Toronto, Globe and Mail). Their recent schedule has included concerts in New York (Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall), Amsterdam (Concertgebouw), Los Angeles (REDCAT at Disney Hall), St. Petersburg, Paris, Prague, Berlin, Rome, Belgrade, Zagreb, Atlanta, as well as appearances at international festivals in Poland, Lithuania, Italy, Venezuela, Brazil, and China. Described by Fanfare Magazine as “an ensemble of formidable power and keen musical sensitivity”, the PSQ’s diverse discography includes the chamber music of Brahms, Beethoven, Shostakovich, and the Bartok cycle. They enter their 25th year as Quartet-in-Residence at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario.
Described as an “authentic musician with a sparkling technique” (Le Droit) and “full of fire and warmth” (the New York Times), Canadian pianist SHOSHANA TELNER has performed across Canada and abroad. She débuted as soloist with the National Arts Centre Orchestra at the age of 16 and has since performed with orchestras including the Québec Symphony Orchestra, the Boston Classical Orchestra, and the National Academy Orchestra. Shoshana received a Bachelor’s degree from Boston University, a Master’s degree from the Juilliard School, and a Doctorate from McGill University. Her recordings include works by Colin Mack (2009), the six Bach Keyboard Partitas (2012), and the Grieg violin/piano sonatas with Jeremy Bell (2015).
