Music from Paris
Dutilleux – Ainsi la nuit
Ravel – Quatuor à cordes
Franck – Piano Quintet in F minor (with Meng-Chieh Liu, piano)
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.
For their final concert in the Music from Paris series, Quatuor Diotima performs three modern classics from the chamber music repertoire. This concert opens with Dutilleux’s masterful Ainsi la Nuit followed by Ravel’s Quatuor à cordes, which is often considered Ravel’s first masterpiece. Quatuor Diotima is joined by pianist Meng-Chieh Liu to close out this three-night series with the highly emotional Piano Quintet in F minor by Franck.
This concert is presented in partnership with the France Chicago Center.
