Ebène Quartet

Pre-concert Talk 6:30 PM

“The superb Quatuor Ebène has made a name for itself not only as an elegant purveyor of classical fare but also for jazz performances,” playing “with no-holds-barred fervor” (The New York Times). The Ebène brings Debussy’s Quartet to life “with a refreshing muscularity, the kind of dynamism the composer wrote into the score” and “moments of real spikiness and angularity,” while keeping it “exceptionally fluid rhythmically” ( In switching to jazz, there’s “no sudden stylistic leap…the players [sound] like themselves, intelligent, smooth, sensuous” (Boston Classical Review).ebeneaudionotes
