SUNDAY MARCH 28

2.30pm – Musée océanographique

CONCERT – WORLD PREMIERE AND SECOND VIENNESE SCHOOL

Inexhaustible, the string quartet genre has always inspired the greatest composers. At the end of the 19th century, Schoenberg wanted to pay glowing homage to Mozart, though his almost expressionist flights paved the way for modernism. Webern took the opposite stance, opting for an aphoristic approach. French composer Frédéric Durieux (b. 1959) here unveils his String Quartet no. 2, its predecessor having received its first performance at the Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo in 2007. His subtle and elaborate sonorities will be ideally served by the Tana Quartet, which has long focused its efforts on the promoting of contemporary works.
