World renowned musicians at Fanny Bay OAP Hall

Violinist Laurence Kayaleh and cellist Elizabeth Dolin will be performing

Saturday, Nov. 21, the Fanny Bay Community Association presents the Dolan Kayaleh Duo, two of Canada’s leading proponents of violin and cello, at the OAP Hall, Ships Point Road, Fanny Bay.

Violinist Laurence Kayaleh and cellist Elizabeth Dolin will be performing an unusual program of duos by Rheinhold Glière, Zoltan Kodaly and Maurice Ravel.

Each piece reflects the composers’ native countries through their use of folk character, which gives a taste of Glière’s native Russia, Kodaly’s Hungary and Ravel’s unique style, impressionistic yet imbued with a Spanish flair.

The program is beautiful and unique, showcasing both instruments and demanding an incredible technical control from both players.

Kayaleh has performed as an international soloist with many distinguished orchestras worldwide.

Dolin, originally from Toronto, is the founding member of several highly regarded ensembles including the Fouquet-Dolin Cello Duo and Les Cordes Romatiques. She has collaborated with such artists as Pinchas Zuckerman, Steven Isserlis, Martin Beaver, conductors Yannick Nezet-Séguin, Simon Streatfield, Mario Bernardi, and has appeared with most major Canadian orchestras.

Since her two highly acclaimed débuts at Carnegie Recital Hall and at London’s Barbican Centre, she has become one of Canada’s most prominent cellists and is in constant demand as a chamber musician. Throughout her career, critics have continually referred to the subtle quality of her tone, refined musicality and strong technical abilities.

Her recording of the complete works of Mendelssohn for cello and piano, on the Analekta label, was nominated for Best Album of the Year by l’ADISQ in both 2002 and 2004, and won worldwide praise.

Please Note! As the FB Christmas Craft Fair is happening at the Hall the same weekend, we have moved this concert to the OAP Hall across the street.

Due to the smaller venue, tickets will be at a premium, so pick them up early at Weinberg’s, Salish Sea Market or Laughing Oyster Books in Courtenay.
