Night music with the Quatuor Ebène

Round Midnight is the theme of this concert in which the Quatuor Ebène presents compositions inspired by nocturnal moods and observations. The concert includes Henri Dutilleux’ string quartet Ainsi la Nuit, a work that creates musical nocturnal images of iridescent beauty in seven comparatively short movements. In the jazz arrangement Night Bridge and Arnold Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht, the ensemble receives additional support from the violist Antoine Tamestit and the cellist Nicolas Altstaedt. Both musicians also present themselves with a solo piece each.
