About the Artist:
Since 1999, the Bozzini Quartet has been an original voice in new, experimental and classical music. With rigorous qualitative criteria, they have nurtured a vastly diverse repertoire, unbiased by the currents of fashion. This has led to over 180 commissioned pieces, as well as close to 300 other premiered works. A Bozzini Quartet concert is an art happening, with meticulous and sensuous attention to detail.
The Bozzini Quartet produces and presents its annual concert series in Montreal. The group also tours extensively, bringing its “intense musicality and immense sensitivity” (Musicworks, Canada) to audiences across Canada, the US, South America, and Europe. To ensure continual development in their art, the quartet’s musical laboratories—the Composer’s Kitchen, Performer's Kitchen, and Bozzini Lab—work to mentor and support new generations of composers and performers. The Bozzini Quartet records under its own label, the Collection QB, and can be heard regularly on European and Canadian radio.
