The Modigliani Quartet, the new artistic director of Quatuors à Bordeaux, invites the famous Artemis Quartett, one of the most famous ensembles of today. Created in 1989, the legendary Artemis Quartett will offer us a concert that travels through 19th century Europe. Admire the latest gems composed for string quartet by Felix Mendelssohn, capable of moving in the blink of an eye from painful introspection to the craziest virtuosity. Then discover the one and only work of chamber music left by the master of Italian opera: in his Quartet in E minor, Giuseppe Verdi shows that he is not only a great composer for lyric voices but also a formidable alchemist of string instruments. Finally, let yourself be carried away by one of the founding pieces of the Romantic chamber music repertoire, Franz Schubert’s “Rosamunde” Quartet, famous for its bewitching melodic lines and powerful dramaturgy.
