La presse en parle…

Sur scène

«I cannot imagine a listener being unmoved by this music, particularly when delivered by players capable of rendering its gestures with the unanimity of an accordion’s bellows and the naturalness of human breath.»

The Log Journal (ÉU), août 2017

«Toward the end, a brief viola solo attained a moody grandeur worthy of the late Romantics.»

The New York Times (ÉU), août 2017

«Compelling music, compellingly played… a marvellous performance and clearly a definitive interpretation.»

Edmonton Classical Music (Canada), mars 2017

«***** Stars — It was quite simply a revelation, a cleansing of the ears, and played with matchless conviction and immaculate technique.»

The Scotsman (RU), novembre 2016

«The comtemplatieve stacking of musical layers, the extremely long lyrical lines, interrupted by great silences, the tones were sometimes detained for half a minute, all in concentration brought by the musicians: it was an inexpressible and indefinable experience.»

, octobre 2016

«***** Stars — Bozzinis have a wonderful way with his exquisite monochromes»

The Guardian (RU), octobre 2016

«I believe that this is a great opportunity for any composer who wants to become the best chef in their musical kitchen.»

The Sampler (RU), octobre 2016

«The sounds are remarkably solid and compacted in the string quartet Between Blue, partly because he regularly makes the entire quartet playing the same musical line, make it sound like one instrument.»

Nieuwe Noten (Pays-Bas), septembre 2016

«The piece has an intoxicating character… Oesterle brings us in a sort of daze with its repetitive patterns, thanks to the tight interplay of this excellent quartet.»

Nieuwe Noten (Pays-Bas), septembre 2016

«This was easily the best improvisation by a large Quebec ensemble heard here in many years.»

All About Jazz (ÉU), mai 2016

Sur disque

«The activities of Lepage and Lussier — quirkily proficient in clarinet and guitar respectively — are exquisitely complemented by Bozzini’s strings…»

Chants et danses… with Strings! dans Touching Extremes (Italie), septembre 2017

«At times haunting and tense, their sound is also unadorned, unaffected and exquisite.»

Christopher Butterfield: Trip dans The WholeNote (Canada), août 2017

«Overall an extremely satisfying release — absorbing music incisively performed by Quatuor Bozzini

Christopher Butterfield: Trip dans The Squid’s Ear (ÉU), juin 2017

«The sonic narrative on track ten […] sums up the duo’s interaction most succulently, politically and meaningfully.»

Chants et danses… with Strings! dans The WholeNote #22:9 (Canada), juin 2017

«… uniquely beautiful, but defiantly provocative works.»

Drifter dans The WholeNote #22:8 (Canada), mai 2017

«Over the past year or so I haven’t been alone in noticing how much of the freshest, most intriguing and affecting music has been coming from Canadian composers.»

Drifter dans Boring Like A Drill, mai 2017

«Impeccable playing from Apartment House and Quatuor Bozzini, the Barcelona and Real Madrid of small experimental music ensembles…»

Drifter dans Fluid Radio (RU), mai 2017

«… also alights on some lovely episodes of waxing and waning counterpoint, its fragility countered by the unity displayed by the quartet as a whole.»

Drifter dans 5:4 (RU), avril 2017

«Evocative imagery for truly evocative music-making.»

Drifter dans Sequenza 21 (ÉU), avril 2017

Drifter dans All About Jazz (ÉU), avril 2017
