CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Quatuor Ébène

Wednesday, March 30, 2022 7:30 PM Zankel Hall
Quatuor Ébène by Julien Mignot
The “superb and intensely focused” (The New York Times) Quatuor Ébène takes audiences on a string quartet journey of discovery. Mozart’s popular quartet, the first of six he dedicated to Haydn, enthralls with its technical brilliance and sweet lyricism. Listen for honeyed melodies in R. Schumann’s quartet too, along with smoldering ardor. Emotions also burn powerfully in Shostakovich’s quartet, dedicated to the victims of war and fascism. At turns introspective, sardonic, and elegiac, he quotes his earlier music throughout the work with devastating effect.
