Henri Dutilleux, Pascal Dusapin - Werken voor strijkquartet - Arditti String Quartet

Opname 1993

"Dutilleux's quartet has to be one of the finest post-war works in the genre. In seven movements (plus interludes) that play without a break, this seventeen minute work conjures up a bewildering variety of nocturnal moods, colours and atmospheres. Yet it is always strongly coherent, the writing unified by the composer's tendency to treat the four instruments of the string quartet as if they were one super-stringed instrument. The performance on this disc is absolutely stunning--the precision of the Arditti Quartet is matched by an imagination and colouristic range that's second to none." - Recensie op Amazon.com

Thanks a lot for this unusal and beautifull works!!!Do you have Pascal Dusapin "Medea Material"?

Edmond zei

Alas Horacio, sorry to disappoint. I only recently discovered Dutilleux, let alone Dusapin.

I was fortunate enough to see the Ardittis perform these pieces many years ago. What a revelation! There is no better string quartet for contemporary works. Thank you very much!

Merci voor deze niet-evidente CD!

Pascal Dusapin has indeed composed some exceptional works. If you might ever encounter this disc with his "Invece" for celllo solo, do get it! http://www.amazon.co.uk/Au-Commencement-Monteverdi-Claudio/dp/B00005AKY1

I discovered Dutilleux late in life but through a documentary which I have never been able to get a copy of. And the Arditti are a guarantee as to how the work is performed. BIG fan of both.

Hallo Edmond,
Dank je voor deze kamermuziek. Erg interessant.
Waar kan ik vinden hoe ik zelf ook een blog maak. Ik heb al zoveel muziek binnengehaald, dat het logisch is om ook wat terug te doen?
