Festival International de Colmar : The quartet everyone's talking about

" The largest classical music festival in Alsace. "

QUATUOR MODIGLIANI Amaury Coeytaux, Loïc Rio, violins Laurent Marfaing, viola François Kieffer, cello The Quatuor Modigliani has just celebrated its 20th anniversary and is one of the world's leading string quartets. Thanks to the support of generous patrons, they have the privilege of playing four exceptional Italian instruments from the 17th and 18th centuries. Although the general public knows Stravinsky primarily as a great master of the orchestra, who knew how to make ballets such as The Firebird, Petrushka and The Rite of Spring blaze like no other, he also distinguished himself in the more intimate art of the string quartet. Witness the Three Pieces written in 1914 and premiered the following year, in which the Russian composer explores new musical and harmonic horizons. With Beethoven's Quartet No. 7, the Modigliani Quartet plunges us back into a completely different modernity: that of a composer fiercely determined to make his mark on a musical genre he inherited from Haydn and Mozart, and which he would gradually revolutionise. This first of the three 'Razumovsky' quartets is the first real - and sublime - step in that direction. PROGRAM I. Stravinsky, Three pieces for string quartet L. van Beethoven, String quartet in F major, Op. 59 No. 1 "Razumovsky No. 7"
