Known for his passionate artistry and engaging stage presence, pianist Jon Kimura Parker’s brilliant and versatile career has taken him from Carnegie Hall and Berlin’s Philharmonie to the Beijing Concert Hall and the Sydney Opera House. Ironwood is Ottawa’s new string quartet made up of curious musicians who spend most (but not all) of their musical time playing with the National Arts Centre Orchestra. Enjoy a spectacular solo half from Parker, and witness a fiery f minor Brahms Quintet with Ironwood Quartet.
