Schubert: String Quartet in G Major, Op. 161, D. 887

Alina Ibragimova, violin; Charlotte Saluste-Bridoux , violin; Emilie Hörnlund, viola; Claire Thirion, cello

Renowned for their fresh approach to period instrument performance of classical repertoire, the members of this Russian-Spanish-Swedish-French ensemble together produce a unique sound – described by The Observer (London) as “a shock to the ears of the best kind.” Rediscover great works of Beethoven and Schubert in the ensemble’s Houston debut.  Chiaroscuro Quartet translates into sound the Renaissance painting technique they are named after – crafting unforgettable music through shifting shades of light and darkness.
