Lafayette Quartet’s Final Bow, featuring James Campbell
With more than a dozen albums and a thousand appearances worldwide behind them, this milestone concert marks the final touring season for the Lafayette String Quartet. As Canada’s original all-female quartet, the ground-breaking foursome’s concerts are hailed as “passionate, riveting, and with flawless ensemble.” James Campbell (clarinet), an exceptionally fêted musician who received the Order of Canada in 1997, will join the Lafayettes for their last performance at Chamberfest. Works include Haydn Op. 20 No. 2, a new commission by Ottawa’s Kelly-Marie Murphy entitled For Fragile Personalities in Anxious Times, and Brahms’ beloved Clarinet Quintet.
