Review

Ben Taffijn, Nieuwe Noten, September 12, 2021

Finally, attention to Composer’s Kitchen by Quatuor Bozzini. Every year this famous string quartet organizes a residency with a number of young composers, consisting of workshops, master classes and coaching. All this leads to new string quartets. This year Sarah Davachi, Alec Hall, Vitali Karagkezidis and Sílvia Lanao Aregay contributed new pieces. Friends by Lanao Aregay and Long Gradus by Davachi, of the latter the quartet unfortunately plays only the fourth movement, stand out most. The strings sound like a flock of birds in Friends, a very expressive piece, in which dynamics and melancholy alternate beautifully. Davachi opts for a completely different approach to this chamber ensemble, true to her personal style she has the strings produce clouds of sound that flow beautifully into each other.
