Music and Myth: Remembering R. Murray Schafer event poster

R. Murray Schafer is perhaps best known for his innovative music dramas, based on myths and performed in unusual settings, including a wilderness lake at dawn and Toronto’s Union Station. He also composed an impressive corpus of 13 string quartets.

This concert features musicians who collaborated with Schafer and who have an intimate knowledge of his chamber music. Performers include the Molinari String Quartet, Michelle Gott (harp), Lara Deutsch (flute), and Brooke Dufton (soprano). There will be an audience talkback with the artists in Woodside Hall following the performance.

Co-produced by the Research Centre for Music, Sound, and Society in Canada and Ottawa Chamberfest with support from the School for Studies in Art and Culture, and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Carleton University.
