Quatuor Zaïde, which was formed in 2009, is made up of four young French women musicians who make it a point of pride not to specialise in a specific repertoire as they believe that the music of the past informs the present and that it is impossible to understand the music of yesteryear without contemplating contemporary works. Although Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert are the cornerstone of their repertoire, they also make forays into pop in the form of collaborations with artists including Camélia Jordana and Bénabar. For this intimate performance their invited guests are cellist Xavier Phillips and clarinettist Michel Portal. This promises to be an interesting meeting of two generations.
