For our Winter 2014 Embedded residencies, we are delighted to announce two new partnerships with Quatuor Bozzini and South London Gallery

 Quatuor Bozzini Since 1999, the Bozzini Quartet has been an original voice in new, contemporary, experimentaland classical music. Their skew is radically  contemporary, propelling the hyper -creative Montréalscene, and beyond. Not content to parlay received wisdom, the quartet cultivates an ethos ofrisk-taking, and boldly  venture off the beaten track. With rigorous qualitative criteria, they havenurtured a vastly diverse repertoire, unbiased by the currents of fashion.This has led to over  a  hundred and thirty commissioned pieces, as well as close to two hundred other premieredworks. A Bozzini Quartet concert is an art happening, with meticulous and  sensuous attention todetail.The Bozzini Quartet produces and presents its annual concert series in Montréal. The groupalso tours extensively, bringing its “intense  musicality and immense sensitivity” (Musicworks,Canada), to audiences across Canada, the US, South America and Europe.
