Les Violons du Roy takes its name from the renowned string orchestra of the court of the French kings and has become the jewel of Québec City’s musical scene. With over thirty-one recordings to its name and multiple decades of experience, the chamber orchestra brings its regular collaborator, acclaimed British violinist Anthony Marwood, to the Sheen Center for a night of chamber music. Marwood’s name has become “magic” in the classical scene (The Independent), his playing “the realization of perfection and honesty” (The Sunday Tribune), and has been denoted the “consummate artist...blessed with boundless energy, intellectual curiosity and creative wizardry” (BBC Music Magazine). Together, they present a varied program of works by Mozart, Strauss and Enescu.
The first series of its kind for the Sheen Center presents some of the greatest music ever written performed in fresh and exciting ways, including unique collaborations, by renowned young musicians.
