The Quatuor Arod plays Mendelssohn, Attahir and Schubert Théâtre des Bouffes-du-Nord


In 2013, four talented musicians fresh out of the Paris Conservatory (Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris) decided to join forces—and thus the Quatuor Arod was born. In less than a decade, the young ensemble has racked up a host of prestigious awards—including first prize for string quartets in the ARD International Music Competition in Munich in 2016—and has performed everywhere from Wigmore Hall and the Berliner Philharmonie to the Concertgebouw and Carnegie Hall!

For this 2017 concert the ensemble lend their talents to Schubert’s perennially moving Rosamunde, as well as the second quartet from Mendelssohn’s Op. 44. The program also includes the world premiere of Al ‘Asr, The Afternoon Prayer by the young French composer, conductor, and violinist Benjamin Attahir—a figure who, like the four accomplished musicians of the Quatuor Arod, proves that classical music is also a young person's game...
