Charm and esprit
With openness, passion and British courtesy, the Doric String Quartet has played its way into the world's great concert halls. Now it dedicates itself to an exquisite French program in the Mozart Hall. For an exceptional masterpiece of late French Romanticism, it teams up with the duo of violinist Alina Ibragimova and pianist Cédric Tiberghien: Together, the world-renowned chamber musicians perform Ernest Chausson's Concerto for Piano, Violin and String Quartet. The works of Guillaume Lekeu and Claude Debussy also possess charm and esprit, with which the two ensembles each inspire individually. Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien present the Violin Sonata by the Walloon Guillaume Lekeu, premiered in 1893 by Eugène Ysaÿe. In the same year, Debussy's epochal string quartet was launched in Paris, with which he opened the door to modernism.
