‘Crumble Quartet’ plays

Catherine Campbell plays the cello as the “Crumble Quartet” performs at the Friday Music Night at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday.

EMC news - “Let them eat cake” is a quote attributed, perhaps falsely, to the infamous Marie Antoinette, showing her disdain for the starving masses. But there is no comparable “Let them eat crumble” situation involving the so-called “Crumble Quartet” because the group served up a musical treat far in excess of any crumble or indeed any cake as they performed at the Friday Music Night at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday evening. The four lady musicians, who also play with the larger

Ottawa-based Strings of St. John’s ensemble, entertained the full house at the coffee shop with a repertoire that included not only classic Bach and Mozart but also the unique music of English composter Gustav Holst, the theme from TV’s “Masterpiece Theatre” and the music of tango dancing. The quartet calls itself the “Crumble Quartet” because when they get together on a regular basis to develop their harmonic creations, they share plates of fruit crumble. Crumble is a dish of British and Irish origin that features a simple crisp topping over

a stewed fruit, usually apple, peach, rhubarb, blackberry
