Four members of the KW Symphony will play Debussy's First String Quartet, in G minor, Op. 10.

Don't let the formal title of this extraordinary work fool you!  Debussy's First String Quartet is anything but formal.  Its fleeting mood, ravishing grandeur, and subtlety of timbre eclipse the rigours of traditional form.  Follow that with the fun of William Bolcom's Ghost Rags and you'll find a classical road map to jazz.  Join friends from the KW Symphony in this performance of music that enlivens and inspires.
