Orchestration for the String Quartet: research-creation with the ACTOR Project 

Robert Hasegawa, coordinator 

Quatuor Bozzini
Clemens Merkel, Alissa Cheung, violin; Stéphanie Bozzini, viola; Isabelle Bozzini, cello 

New works by MARILOU BURON, CHELSEA KOMSCHLIES, MIKO SABATINO, SHOWAN TAVAKOL with researchers Robert Hasegawa, Jimmie LeBlanc, Emmanuelle Majeau-Bettez, Jade Roth 

Childhood daydreams, shimmering textures, meteorological phenomena, and traditional Persian music were inspirations for four new string quartets written for Quatuor Bozzini. These were workshopped over a multi-phase research collaboration with four composers— Chelsea Komschlies and Marilou Buron from McGill University, plus Miko Sabatino and Showan Tavokol from Université de Montréal—and four researchers (Robert Hasegawa, Jimmie LeBlanc, Jade Roth, and Emanuelle Majeau-Bettez) who tested and developed strategies for timbre-based approaches to string quartet composition. Four unique and colourful approaches to string quartet writing. A co-production of ACTOR (Analysis, Creation and Teaching of Orchestration) and Quatuor Bozzini.
