Music from Paris
Boulez – Livre pour quatuor
Pesson – Quatuor a cordes no. 3 Farrago
Debussy – Quatuor a Cordes en sol mineur Op. 10
The French string quartet Quatuor Diotima has received acclaim around the world for its interdisciplinary collaborations that cast a new light on both masterpieces of the quartet canon and contemporary additions to the genre. Serving as the University’s 2021/22 Don Michael Randel Ensemble-in-Residence, Quatuor Diotima will present three concerts on our stages this fall.
On the first night of this Music from Paris series, Quatuor Diotima will present an excerpt of Pierre Boulez’s only string quartet followed by a piece from Gérard Pesson, written for and premiered by Quatuor Diotima. The evening will conclude with the eternally influential Claude Debussy’s only string quartet.
This concert is presented in partnership with the France Chicago Center.
