Quatuor Ébène in Boston
When: February 28 at 8pm
Where: NEC’s Jordan Hall, 30 Gainsborough St, Boston
This French string quartet can do it all: they’re a string quartet and a jazz band, and—no matter what they’re playing—they inhabit it with a style all their own. Don’t miss the chance to hear them, as part of the Celebrity Series. The program includes the Quartet in E-flat Major, K.428 by Mozart, the Quartet No. 3 by Bartók, and a selection of jazz pieces.
“A string quartet that can easily morph into a jazz band” —The New York Times
“Our jazz-playing also helps to inform our classical performance. It enables us to look at the score from a different perspective and to see classical music as a kind of improvisation. We like to be as free as possible in our performance and for every concert to be slightly different.” —Pierre Colombet, violinist, Quatuor Ébène
