Joel Quarrington


Reviewing Joel Quarrington’s début recital for the International Society of Bassists Oklahoma City convention in June 2007, England’s Double Bassist magazine said, “his performance was mesmerizing - his trademark bel canto playing style brought an otherworldly quality to Bottesini’s Elegy in D…he demonstrated impeccable articulation, a rich tonal palette, absolute control and crystalline clarity. A memorable night…” Reviews such as this have confirmed his reputation as one of today’s leading double bassists.

Born in Toronto, Joel Quarrington began playing the bass at the age of eleven and is a winner of the Geneva International Competition. For over thirty years he has served as the Principal Double Bassist of many ensembles, including the Canadian Opera Company, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa. Joel Quarrington teaches at Montreal’s McGill University and in the summers, Mt. Orford Quebec, where his master-classes have attracted players from around the world. He has performed with many of the world’s leading string quartets and is a regular performer with the Pinchas Zukerman Chamber Players. In April 2005 he had the honour of playing the world première of John Harbison’s Concerto for Bass Viol with the Toronto Symphony and Hugh Wolf.

Joel Quarrington performs on an Italian bass made in 1630 by the Italian master, Santo Paolo Maggini.
