Music Network presents Quatuor Voce

Thursday, 16 November 2017, 8.00pm

Beyond the lyricism, the technical brilliance, and the obvious joy in playing together, what strikes audiences most about Quatuor Voce is their spirit of adventure. Here is an ensemble that knows the music from the inside, knows where it can be allowed to breathe a bit more and has the finesse and elegance to carry it off. No wonder then that the ensemble has shared a stage with such diverse personalities as choreographer Thomas Lebrun and Canadian neo-folk singer Kyrie Kristmanson, as well as regularly performing live music for silent movies.

Formed in 2004, the quartet quickly established itself as an ensemble of note, winning international competitions in Geneva, Vienna, Bordeaux, Graz, and London and performing in such prestigious venues as the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, the Konzerthaus, Vienna and Barbican in London as part of a ‘Rising Stars’ tour in 2013.  In addition to championing the great repertoire for string quartet, Quatuor Voce regularly performs new commissions from composers such as Bruno Mantovani, Gianvicenzo Cresta and Graziane Finzi.
