The 2008-09 season will see the Arthur-LeBlanc Quartet celebrate its 20th anniversary with the release of a complete Shostakovich quartet box-set under the XXI-21 label.
This season's appearances include the Club Musical de Québec, and two concerts for Music Toronto as the chamber music series' "ensemble-in-residence". After the first concert as part of the residency in November, John Terauds of the Toronto Star suggested that "you should make a point of catching their next Toronto performance, March 25"!
As part of their third year in residence at Laval University in Quebec City, the quartet will offer a chamber music workshop with a special string quartet program. The workshop will take place in February and participation in the string quartet program is open to the public.
The quartet's second season in residence at Laval University, the quartet leaps into the modern era with the launch of their new website! Also, their newly released CD on the ATMA label, in collaboration with guitarist Roland Dyens, is well received by critics.
The Arthur-LeBlanc Quartet is very proud to announce their appointment as both "quartet-in-residence" and "invited professors" of strings and chamber music at Laval University's Faculty of Music.
