Info for Haydn - Bartók - Mozart
Revered since the height of the Classical era up to the simmering years of the 20th century, the string quartet represented an ideal genre to which composers entrusted their most innovative ideas. The Modigliani Quartet illuminates these brilliant masterpieces, each bearing witness to a turning point in the lives of their authors. Brimming with poetry, audacity and a thirst for life, the singular narratives of these quartets herald the advent of new horizons.
The Paris based Modigliani Quartet, formed by four close friends in 2003, is a regular guest of the world’s top venues and finest String Quartet series. In the current and upcoming seasons, the quartet will be touring in the USA, Japan, Korea, China and extensively most of the European countries. They will return among others to the Wigmore Hall for a series of concerts, the Carnegie Hall, the Paris’ Philharmonie, Vienna’s Konzerthaus, Salzburg’s Mozarteum, Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, Warsaw Philharmonic Hall, Tokyo’s Oji Hall, as well having been the first String Quartet to perform in the big Hall of the newly opened Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie at the beginning of 2017.
In 2014, the Modigliani Quartet became Artistic Directors of the Rencontres Musicales d’Evian, a festival created in 1976 by Antoine Riboud and made famous through its former legendary artistic director Mstislav Rostropovich, after a pause of thirteen years. The joint efforts of the Evian Resort and the Modigliani Quartet has brought a very fast success and the festival has now become again one of Europe’s major and most publicized Summer musical events.
The quartet has been recording for the Mirare label since 2008 and has released 7 CDs, all being internationally acclaimed by the critic and awarded prizes. The next release will be complete recording of the Schumann String Quartets in the Fall of 2017.
The Modigliani Quartet, ever since very dedicated to bigger chamber music, has built true friendships and regular touring with other musicians as Sabine Meyer, Renaud Capuçon, Beatrice Rana, Nicholas Angelich, Jean-Frédéric Neuburger, Marie-Elisabeth Hecker or Daniel Müller-Schott.
After fifteen years of building up their own sound and profile, the Modigliani Quartet is now happy to take over the responsability of passing their experience to the next generation. They created in 2016 the Atelier within the Festival in Evian and will be holding a series of Masterclasses at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris from November 2017 on.
