Acacia Quartet & Lyle Chan perform 'AIDS Memoir Quartet' by Lyle Chan

Recorded 24 June, 2016,  Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre - 181 Roundhouse Mews (Pacific & Davie), Vancouver BC, Canada

The 90-minute work is a tour-de-force of emotionally powerful music, sometimes agitated, sometimes tender, but always beautiful. It contains reflections of historic events, portraits of famous activist friends now dead, and unusual effects like the use of police whistles to recall street demonstrations by ACT UP, the direct action protest group of which Lyle Chan was a core member.
