Acclaimed for their ravishingly beautiful tone as well as their extraordinary technical skills and musicianship, the members of the New Orford String Quartet (NOSQ) delve into works by three Canadian composers: Francois Dompierre (Par quatre chemins), Airat Ichmouratov (String Quartet No. 4, Op. 35), and Tim Brady (Journal / String Quartet No. 2). The quartet by Francois Dompierre was commissioned by Jean-Francois Rivest when he was artistic director of the Orford Arts Centre. Its title, Par quatre chemins, is a reference to the famous radio show with the same name, hosted by a great communicator, Jacques Languirand.
