THE TRIBUTE TO GABRIEL KNEY WAS A STUNNING MUSICAL AND CULTURAL EVENT.
(Look for our preview of the 2017-2018 season below.)
The classic St. John the Evangelist church venue in which we honoured the craftsmanship of Gabriel Kney and his fellow organ builders was the site of a remarkable fusion of great music and human endeavour. We all were spellbound by the capability of the Kney organ itself to produce the sounds from scores written years ago by Bach, Mendelssohn, Cabina and Cook when transferred to the keyboard by Michael Bloss and Angus Sinclair. The ambience of the evening was set by the welcome by Reverend Hutchison-Hounsell, and the heartfelt words about the Kney organ by music director Dr. Allan Bevin. Renée Silberman's program notes added to the understanding of the significance of the evening. The standing ovation for Michael Bloss and Angus Sinclair was shared by Gabriel Kney. Those of us in attendance recognized that this was a unique opportunity for Londoners to hear wonderful music and to honour one of our own.

Biographies

Canadian Guitar quartet
The Canadian Guitar Quartet, featuring Julien Bissaillon, Renaud Côté-Giguère, Bruno Roussel and Louis Trépanier

Since its debut in 1999, the Canadian Guitar Quartet has toured extensively in North and South America, from one standing ovation to the next, establishing a reputation as one of the finest guitar ensembles in the world. The CGQ has appeared with orchestra across Canada, and has recorded three critically acclaimed CDs.
The quartet has been broadcast on both CBC and Radio-Canada, has had a special performance feature on Bravo! Television, was featured in the webcast at Chicago’s Northwestern University, on CBC’s overseas networks, and in various international magazines. Following the CGQ’s first concert at the 92Street Y in New York, part of the Art of the Guitar series, Don Witter Jr., of the New York Classical Guitar Society, wrote: “The Canadian Guitar Quartet made one of the greatest New York City Debuts of any artistic ensemble in decades … STUNNING !!!”.
Concerts in some of Canada’s most prestigious concert halls, such as the Winspear Center, the Palais Montcalm, the Glenn Gould Studio, and National Gallery of Canada, as well as their performances in seminal events such as the Guitar Foundation of America’s annual convention, Yale’s Guitar Extravaganza, the Norfolk and Ottawa chamber music festivals, have allowed the Canadian Guitar Quartet to develop an international reputation. The mix of dynamic original music and classical masterpieces make a CGQ concert an unforgettable experience.
“The Canadian Guitar Quartet tackles all with great brilliance and an optimal mastery of their instruments” (Guitart magazine – ITALY).
