“What makes Quatuor Èbéne truly special, besides the unbridled enthusiasm and the intensity with which they approach the classical repertoire, is their openness to other types of music that informs their interpretation of the canon.” — Bachtrack
“One of the most exciting and distinctive of the new generation.” The New York Times
It's a rare ensemble that can play Haydn and Debussy with complete command and then shift gears to offer a jazz set of Miles Davis and Chick Corea with equal authority. But the versatile Ébène Quartet, from Paris, has made that its trademark, adding spice to a traditionally fusty corner of classical music. This complexity of their repertoire has been greeted enthusiastically by audiences and critics and made them one of Europe’s most sought-after ensembles.
With a cohesion that only comes from having performed together for over two decades, the ensemble’s telepathic understanding, artistic daring, and musical individuality make for edge-of-the-seat concert experiences, intensely focused and touched by visionary insights.
With their charismatic playing, their fresh approach to tradition and their open engagement with new forms, it is sure to be a captivating evening with the Ébène Quartet.
