Quatuor Apollinaire

Quatuor Apollinaire
Quatuor Apollinaire Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918) is the symbol of the ebullient and creative art of a troubled epoch in which experimentation abounded in all forms of art, science, society, and even revolution. An immense poet of deep ramifications, from his domestic roots to his vivacious artistic collaborations (paintings, music, theater), this “seeker of new horizons” greatly inspired the musicians of this ensemble with his many explorations. The quartet attempts, in its own manner, to reveal and revive from the past a repertoire still largely underestimated and deserving of new attention. Founded in 1994, and with at its base, the esteemed saxophone and piano duo Jean-Michel Goury/Yves Josset this ensemble of flute, piano, saxophone, and keyboards/voice primarily dedicates itself to chamber music from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century. It also incorporates, however, the commissioning of contemporary works in order to enrich the literature of this unusual instrumental combination. Since 1996, the quartet has performed concerts and masterclasses throughout the U.S., Canada, Italy, Spain and Israel. Their first album was recorded in 2000. Quatuor Apollinaire performances are presented and commentated, making scenographic adaptions (lighting, spacing/placement) to selected works.
