Seen and Heard
Modern music from
the Kreutzer Quartet -
'... whimsical, fickle and modernistic ...'
Members of the Kreutzer Quartet believe that chamber music should be both seen and heard; the art being a composite of performance mechanics and interaction between fellow musicians.
Since its formation in 1988 the KSQ has become recognized as one of Europe's most dynamic and eclectic quartets -- its acclaimed recordings for Metier, Naxos, Chandos, and Carlton are very largely of modern works.
Here on DVD the four string players demonstrate the inner workings of a fully integrated ensemble as exemplified in twentieth century music from composers of Russia, Hungary, Poland and England.
The quartet is the dedicatee of numerous works, and during twenty-four years it has established creative partnerships with composers including Sir Michael Tippett (1905-1998), David Matthews (born 1943), Judith Weir (born 1954) and Hafliði Hallgrímsson (born 1941 in Iceland)...
