September 21, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm$30
The Canadian Piano Quartet is excited to be back this season with an energetic and entertaining programme centred on dance-inspired works. Latin-American music, such as Lecuona’s Malagueña, Tangos by Astor Piazzolla as well as Weber’s elegant Invitation to the Dance, will be just some of the ‘fireworks’ for eight hands and forty fingers not to be missed!
ABOUT THE CANADIAN PIANO QUINTET
The Canadian Piano Quartet (CPQ) includes two of the music world’s best known married couple piano duos: Elizabeth and Marcel Bergmann (Duo Bergmann), Edward Turgeon and Anne Louise-Turgeon (the Duo Turgeon). Widely regarded as leaders of the multi-piano genre, the duos have established fine reputations through concerts, prizes captured at some in the world’s most prestigious duo piano competitions, recordings, broadcasts, creation and premiere of new works as well as judging activities. Over the years, the duos found themselves meeting up at different festivals in Canada and abroad, each time enjoying friendship and a chance to celebrate the rich world of chamber music for four to eight hands. In 2018, the duos decided to take things one step further, creating the Canadian Piano Quartet. After the success of CPQ’s first concert in White Rock, British Columbia, it was decided that CPQ should hit the road! CPQ’s latest seasons includes concerts from coast to coast. The quartets’s repertoire includes works 2-8 hands and draws from a wide range of musical styles from the Baroque to Contemporary and includes many original arrangements.
ABOUT THE BERGMANN DUO
The Bergmann Duo’s dynamic and energetic performances of uniquely eclectic programmes, which include numerous own arrangements and compositions, have inspired audiences internationally. They have performed in concert and with orchestra worldwide.
The duo studied with Arie Vardi at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater, Hannover and with Jean-Eudes Vaillancourt at the Université de Montréal. Elizabeth is Artistic Director of Concerts at the Langley Community Music School and both are Artistic Directors of White Rock Concerts.
