We have waited for a few years now to see this wonderful young string quartet from France, formed in 1999. Winning a variety of major awards for their 2009 recording of the Debussy, Ravel and Faure quartets – including Gramophone’s Record of the Year, they have received the highest critical praise no matter where or what they have played. They have very quickly become ‘staples’ at the esteemed Wigmore Hall, London, mixing both Gallic flair and insight with technical precision, and probing the widest variety of traditional and contemporary music. This is a ‘must see’.
