“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” (AllMusic.com). In switching to jazz, there’s “no sudden stylistic leap…the players [sound] like themselves, intelligent, smooth, sensuous” (Boston Classical Review).
