DIFFERENT TRAINS - THE ROLSTON STRING QUARTET

The Rolston String Quartet performs Steve Reich’s Different Trains with a moving video re-creation by Beatriz Caravaggio. The Grammy Award-winning 1988 work for string quartet and tape is Reich’s reflection of his train journeys between New Yorkand Los Angeles to visit his parents, who had separated. He later pondered the fact that, as a Jew, had he been in Europe instead of the United States at that time, he might have been travelling in Holocaust trains. Also performed will be Shostakovich’s Quartet No. 7.


Date and Time: Tuesday, June 12th at 5:00 p.m.

Location: Pollack Hall, McGill University (map)
