A string quartet from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra begins this concert with music by Édith Canat de Chizy, a French composer born in Lyon in 1950, but who lives in Paris. She has composed for all formats, including numerous orchestral works. Her pieces often have imaginative and inspiring titles, and String Quartet No. 4 from 2017 is no exception: En noir et or – “In Black and Gold.” The music is inspired by James Whistler’s evocative painting Nocturne in Black and Gold – The Falling Rocket (1875).
Gold is also present in Debussy’s String Quartet in G minor, one of the great masterpieces of the genre. It is traditionally arranged with four movements, but in this well-known form, Debussy has brought out musical gold with lyrically caressing melodies, rhythmic challenges and surprising harmonies.
Lola Torrente has been a member of the orchestra’s first violin section since 2015; Gabriel Cornet has been a member of the second violin section since 2016; Lauriane Dahlkvist has been a member of the viola section since 2016; and Josep Castanyer Alsonso has been a member of the cello section since 2019.
