Modigliani Quartet

The Modigliani Quartet has been making waves in the chamber music world since they first began playing together in 2003, following their studies at the prestigious Conservatoire de Paris. It was there they studied with the Ysaÿe Quartet and attended classes with Walter Levin and György Kurtág. Modigliani has gone on to perform on the world’s most prestigious stages and returns to Duke Arts with a typically wide-ranging program. The program begins with the most ‘unconventional:’ Webern’s Five Pieces, a fascinating web of interconnected motifs and melodies punctuated with unexpected instrument and bowing techniques. Two much-loved string quartets follow: the second of Beethoven’s three ‘Razumovsky’ Quartets and Ravel’s first and only string quartet: a bold masterpiece, which often sounds fuller than just its four instruments because of the depth of color explored throughout. It is often considered to be his first great work, signaling his rise from relative obscurity.
