Violist Marina Thibeault and Pianist Janelle Fung

March 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Violist Marina Thibeault and pianist Janelle Fung explore classical and contemporary sounds with works by Bray, Hindemith, and Shostakovich

Let the celebrated duo of JUNO Award-winning violist Marina Thibeault and multiple prize-winning pianist Janelle Fung take you on an extraordinary exploration of classical and contemporary sounds. Enjoy the energetic and vibrant rhythms of Dobrinka Tabakova’s “Suite In Jazz,” a piece that masterfully fuses the harmonic sophistication of classical music with the improvisational spirit of jazz. You’ll be captivated by the hauntingly beautiful complexities of Dmitri Shostakovich’s Sonata for Violin and Piano, the Russian composer’s final work completed mere weeks before his death. Let your imagination roam free with Charlotte Bray’s “Invisible Cities,” a contemporary masterpiece that draws inspiration from Italo Calvino’s novel, crafting an aural landscape that will transport you to far-off, unseen places, and Paul Hindemith’s Sonata, Op. 11, No. 4, a stirring work epitomizing Hindemith’s innovative compositional style, expertly balancing melodic invention with rigorous structure. Renowned for her rich and deep sound as well as her virtuosity and exceptional enthusiasm, violist Marina Thibeault invests the musical scene with an ever-renewed fervour as a chamber musician, concert artist, and soloist. With a Bachelor of Music from the Eastman School of Music, a Master of Music from the Juilliard School and a Ph.D. from the University of Montreal, pianist Janelle Fung has performed widely and has won prizes at many prestigious national and international competitions.
