RAVEL String quartet in F major
For this concert in Iberian musical colours, (re)discover Ravel with his String quartet in F major, a quartet that already hints at the rhythms and hues of the composer’s later Hispanic-influenced works.
The clocks are once again set to Spanish time for this first concert by the Van Kuijk Quartet at the Dijon Opera. Founded in 2012, this promising young French ensemble is already a regular guest of the great European stages.
