Bach feast
Some will say: Bach did not know string Quartet! And they will be right, however, is it a reason for the Quartet to ignore him?
We play Bach Suites,Sonatas and Partitas since our youngest age. We heard the Chorals, legendary, we sang them in choirs or sight read them to warm up with the quartet. The Inventions were omnipresent in music schools corridors.The Ricercare of the Musical Offering were, for some of us, discovered through the Webern's transcription of it. And the Art of Fugue, we always come back to it, to think about music, what is music, to go deeper to the source of our quartet repertoire, where it comes from, or just to have fun.
Every time we come back to Bach, we always try to discover new things, to listen in a different way, to open our ears even bigger. That is why, we would like to experiment with this only Bach programme; play with our own habits and with the audience's habits, an as an explorer we would like to go on an adventure and share it.

This programme has been thought through with a special light set and the four musicians will be exploring the space of the concert hall.
