Feat. Johannes Brahms' magnificent clarinet quintet

Clarinetist and Queen’s faculty member, Kornel Wolak, joins the Isabel Quartet to perform the towering Brahms Clarinet Quintet. In addition to Haydn’s Opus 20, No. 6 in A Major, the concert includes a performance of Madra by Bruce A. Russell (aka El Mahboob), a Toronto-based composer who was born in Kingston in 1968.  The Quartet’s First Violinist, Laura Andriani, is unable to play this concert and we are fortunate to have Marc Djokovic fill in.

Canadian violinist Marc Djokic is the Concertmaster of l’Orchestre classique de Montréal and Music Director of ART CRUSH Ensembl’arts. He is a Mécénat Musica Prix Goyer recipient and winner of the 2020 ECMA Classical Recording of the Year for his debut album Solo Seven. Among other distinctions, Djokic is a Prix Opus laureate and has continuously taken on the role of Artist-in-Residence at various institutions and music festivals since 2009. Over the last four years he has been featured in over 100 music videos and video recordings. He performs on a rare Guarnerius violin from 1740, a Carl Becker 1927 and a Hannibal Fagnola 1922.
