The string quartet is the highest achievement of classical music. How to describe what a great string quartet is/does? Four voices that sing, simultaneously dependently and independently. Or, as someone else once said, "a conversation among four very intelligent and witty persons." After almost 200 years, Beethoven's 16 quartets still stand as the acme of the form, notwithstanding brilliant contributions from just about every important composer since. There are many wonderful performances of the Beethoven quartets available on CD, but none are more distinguished than these performances by the Talich Quartet. More than any other ensemble in my experience, the Talich's performances proclaim that intimacy is the true experience of quartet playing (and listening). Every phrase is projected with exquisite attention to the constantly shifting balance of light and shadow that is the hallmark of the greatest quartet playing. Tempos are vigorous without being rushed, rubato is applied in the subtlest way imaginable, and dynamics seem to explore impossible distinctions between pp and ppp. In short, every performance in this set invites you to carefully listen to Beethoven's musical argument as you've never listened before.

One of the characteristics of Morton Feldman's music is the way silences are thrown into stark relief. Each silence - freighted with memory, charged with expectation - becomes a unique presence in the music more than merely an absence of it. Though his silences are measured in units of time, they also contain an intimation of infinity. The music of the "classical" tradition slows down, speeds up, layers and otherwise manipulates time. Of the other arts, only cinema plays with our temporal perception to a greater degree.

The New York Times has described the French ensemble as “a string quartet that can easily morph into a jazz band” and its recordings of Haydn, Bartók, Brahms and Schubert have been praised all over the world. Portal and the Ébène first played together in Paris in 2013, where Piazzolla’s compositions were also on the programme, prompting Le Monde to speak of “a significant lesson, a superb encounter, a real conversation.”

The Quatuor Ebène turns to Mendelssohn: two quartets by Felix and one by his elder sister Fanny, who composed over 400 works and who, like her brother, died in 1847. “Felix’s quartets speak with intimacy, but are not devoid of violent, stormy emotion,” says Raphaël Merlin of the Quatuor Ebène. He praises Fanny for composing “with surprising freedom”, saying “we fell in love with her string quartet”.

Une compagnie de danse hip-hop et un quatuor à cordes, impensable ?
Ce n’est pas la réponse donnée par le Quatuor Debussy et Mourad Merzouki, qui se lancent dans le défi d’un spectacle autour de la boxe ; en y mettant des gants, l’univers de combat se crée. Les compositeurs invités sur le ring sont Maurice Ravel, Giuseppe Verdi, Félix Mendelssohn, Franz Schubert et son célèbre quatuor « la jeune fille et la mort », Philipp Glass avec Dracula et Henryk Gorecki. Ce n’est donc pas le Ring de Wagner ! Le parti pris des musiciens a été de participer aux recherches chorégraphiques dès le début du travail pour pouvoir créer et choisir ensemble les univers musicaux.

Annonc¸ant le ce´le`bre Voyageur contemplant une mer de nuages peint l'anne´e suivante par Caspar David Friedrich, Manfred est un drame en vers publie´ en 1817.
