Quatuor Diotima

Wednesday 8 November 2017 at 7.30PM
Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall

Yun-Peng Zhao violin

Constance Ronzatti violin

Franck Chevalier viola

Pierre Morlet cello

Szymanowski    Quartet no. 2 op. 56

Ravel     Quartet in F

Schubert     Quartet in G D.887

Sitting between two classical quartets, the great quartet by Ravel is to be heard at its best in performance by French musicians who bring a native sensibility to its lush textures.  Szymanowski fuses neo-classicism with the folk music of the Tatra mountains and Schubert’s final quartet is a pinnacle of the repertoire. Paris-based Quatuor Diotima’s reputation for clarity of performance in both classical and contemporary music has taken it to the Americas, Japan and throughout Europe.  The Quartet is an Artist-in-Association at the University of York and will be working on this visit with student composers and string quartets.
