Quatuor Diotima

Wednesday 29 January 2020 at 7.30PM
Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall

Yun-Peng Zhao violin

Constance Ronzatti violin

Franck Chevalier viola

Pierre Morlet cello

Harvey     Quartet no. 4

Philippe Manoury     Tensio

The string quartet exploded, transformed, sent spinning round the concert hall: Quatuor Diotima showcase two works developed to harness the technical wizardry of IRCAM’s research into live electronics. In Phillippe Manoury’s Tensio (premiered in 2010 by Diotima) the live quartet compete with a virtual double capable of extremes of sound unachievable by human performers. Harvey’s quartet likewise imagines the electronics as an invisible personality, present through its rhythmic dancing through space; in this case ‘the quartet is the dreamer, the spatialisation the dream’.  Quatuor Diotima is one of the University’s Artists in Association.
