FEATURING

MODIGLIANI QUARTET
Amaury Coeytaux, violin; Loïc Rio, violin; Laurent Marfaing, viola; François Kieffer, cello

​“ The Modigliani quartet clearly belongs to the world’s greatest “ — Le Monde (Paris)

“ A gripping and persuasive performance, played with awesome individual and communal brilliance ” — The Strad (London)

“One of today’s best quartets in the world...Balance, transparency, symphonic comprehension, confident style, their performance reached a very high and inspiring level ” —  Süddeutsche Zeitung (Munich)

The elite French ensemble will perform a wide-ranging program that will include Joaquín’s Turina’s lushly impressionistic La oración de torero (The Bullfighter’s Prayer), Brahms’s tenderhearted Quartet in B-flat, Op. 67, and Beethoven’s sublime Quartet in E minor, Op. 59, No. 2. His student, Carl Czerny, wrote that the second movement “occurred to Beethoven while he was contemplating the starry sky and thinking of the music of the spheres.”
