Concert given for the benefit of the LICRA
The Modigliani Quartet celebrated its fifteenth anniversary with an album entitled Portraits, which the four musicians defined in these terms: "The idea was to offer the listener a journey through the portraits of very different composers, in a logical and coherent sequence. A sort of gallery of portraits in the art of which the painter, whose name we bear, was a master.” As artists who favour "encounters", they have taken on the artistic direction of the aptly named Rencontres Musicales d'Evian, the former festival of Rostropovitch. For this new concert in aid of the LICRA, here is a new encounter, that of chamber music and dance with some of the best artists in their respective fields.
