Event Description

Don’t miss the Vancouver debut of the Simón Bolívar String Quartet. Created from within the Fundación Musical Simón Bolívar, the Quartet is made up of principal players from the world-famous Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela – the showcase ensemble of the country’s remarkable El Sistema music education program. The Quartet arose from the need of its members to explore chamber music and the wealth of benefits it can offer, not only to its musicians but also to the children and young people who make up the Fundacíon. The Quartet has performed around the world to great acclaim and worked with such musical personalities as Gustavo Dudamel, José Antonio Abreu, Claudio Abbado and Sir Simon Rattle.

HAYDN: Quartet in G Major, Hob. III:29
GINASTERA: Quartet No. 1, Op. 20
SHOSTAKOVICH: String Quartet No. 9 in E flat Major, Op. 117

“There are some obvious facts about this quartet, such as that they come from Venezuela, from the El Sistema family, that they were – and still are – the principals of the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra, but what you’ll experience new when you hear this album is the unique power of their music-making. It has the same characteristics as the orchestra from which they come.” — Gustavo Dudamel
