The Ébène Quartet evinces a musical grace, ingenuousness and simplicity that is deeply satisfying
Purcell: Selection of Fantasias (4-5)
Ligeti: String Quartet No. 1, ''Métamorphoses nocturnes''
- intermission -
Brahms: Piano Quintet, Op. 34
The French Ébène Quartet, is an ensemble whose telepathic understanding, artistic daring and musical individuality make for edge-of-the-seat concert experiences which continue to take the musical world by storm.
In this their National Concert Hall début, their trademark charismatic playing and fresh approach to the string quartet repertoire will be palpable in the pairing of highly expressive works for the genre by Purcell and Ligeti, and a highly anticipated collaboration with Irish pianist, Finghin Collins in Brahms’ exhilarating Piano Quintet. It is a performance bound to bring the 2022 International Concert Series to a truly magical and rousing conclusion.
