  • Quatuor Ebene - Schubert

This event has passed.

This adventurous young French quartet brings a quintessentially Gallic élan to everything it plays—from its 2009 Gramophone Recording of the Year to occasional forays into the world of Left Bank jazz. Don’t miss this group whose “rare degree of expressive subtlety, blended sonorities and electrifying joy” (Times, London) makes it one of the most exciting European quartets performing today.

Beethoven: Quartet in B-flat Major, Op. 18, No. 6
Debussy: Quartet in G Minor, Op. 10
Beethoven: Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 127

This performance features a free pre-concert lecture starting at 6:45 PM with Richard Freedman.

Quatuor Ebène

Mastery, elegance, density, complicity, spirit, are words that regularly come back about Quatuor Ebène, now among the most sought after quartets worldwide. Among other prestigious engagements, it has taken part in a Haydn cycle at London’s Wigmore Hall; celebrated the Haydn year at Brussel’s Palais des Beaux-Arts; and enjoyed a residency at the Théí¢tre du.
