What will the string quartet of tomorrow sound like? Champing at the bit to find the answer to this question, four enthusiastic and outstanding French musicians formed the Tana Quartet in 2004. The foursome began an almost obsessive exploration of new worlds of sound, often thanks to technical and technological innovations, but always with great respect for and knowledge of the genre’s rich history. The “Crossroads” project, a full evening programme with three concerts, is thus a perfect fit for the Tana Quartet.From Béla Bartók’s Fourth String Quartet, which the quartet uses both to open and to close its cycle, Tana takes a look back and a look forward at the history and the evolution of the string quartet. From Beethoven to Boesmans, from Debussy to Shostakovich, and from Ligeti to the world première of Adámek; in three powerful, intense concerts, you’ll discover why the string quartet is perhaps the most authentic and purest of all music genres.
