Matinee on 14 May 2017 at 11:00h in the FreiRaum


French string quartet Quatuor Voce present works by Beethoven, Janácek and Mozart at this matinee performance with their signature refined and balanced phrasing and dynamics.

THE QUARTET
Known for their scintillating interpretations, string quartet Quatuor Voce maintain a firm grip on even the most nuanced pieces. Unbridled yet sophisticated coloration characterize the quartet's Beethoven soundscapes, revealing their experience with New Music.
Quatuor Voce was founded in 2004. Trained by the French quartet Ysaÿe, the group soon developed a unique form of ensemble playing and was accepted two years later for the renowned ProQuartet CEMC training program. This was followed by a year at the Instituto Internacional de Música de Cámara de Madrid studying under Günter Pichler, former founder and first violinist of the Alban Berg Quartett.

Quatuor Voce are notable not only for their excellent ensemble playing, but also for the diversity of their musical interests and projects. Collaboration partners range from soloists like soprano Juliane Banse and Canadian cellist Gary Hoffman to choreographer Thomas Lebrun. The quartet also commissions compositions and presents New Music premieres.
Quatuor Voce often depart from the traditional terrain of classical music to experiment with different forms of concert performance. This includes providing the musical accompaniment to silent films by Friedrich Murnau and Buster Keaton as well as the "Le Printemps des Saisons" and "Coeur en Musiques" festivals in Ardèche in southern France. They also visit schools to foster an interest in music among the coming generation.
