String Quartets

Quatuor Diotima

Past Dates

The string quartet by Hanspeter Kyburz was created in close collaboration with the French Diotima Quartett. In the musical language of the piece filigree mathematical patterns are combined by means of skilful gesture. A similar interest formed the basis of the string quartet by Claude Debussy over a century ago. The dreamy bridge between these works is offered by the night study by Henri Dutilleux.
