La presse en parle…

Sur scène

«It felt like staring directly into the sun, transcendent and mindblowing.»

5:4 (RU), novembre 2018

«With over 200 commissions and 300 premieres, their commitment to new works was in full evidence in their ability to make Miller’s and Tenney’s pieces resonate richly on their own terms.»

Vancouver Classical Music (Canada), octobre 2018

«This Bozzini lead concert was of the highest order, each piece equally as tautly and aesthetically constructed as the other; instrumental materials similarly pitched, also as if a tightrope was being walked somehow.»

Gonzo Circus (Belgique), octobre 2018

«The Bozzini Quartet played this delicately intense music with subtle aggression…»

The New York Times (ÉU), août 2018

«… the quartet’s playing throughout had a warm, woody, grainy sound, with excellent intonation, even in extended passages in the violins’ highest range. Their concentration and focus were precise and solid yet with a soft touch, like raw linen stretched taut.»

New York Classical Review (ÉU), août 2018

«The Bozzinis’ committed and razor-focused performances of works by Linda Catlin Smith and Cassandra Miller made them a tough act to follow.»

Christian B Carey, août 2018

«A special occasion, indeed: the music of Swiss composer Jürg Frey, performed by an ensemble that has shown an special knack for his fragile, melancholy idiom.»

National Sawdust (ÉU), décembre 2017

«Quatour Bozzini with Isaiah Ceccarelli (percussion) and Noam Bierstone (percussion), performing Jürg FreyString Quartet No. 3; Unhörbare Zeit»

View from Elsewhere, décembre 2017

«… a distinctive voice. Smith’s undoubtedly has that.»

The Guardian (RU), novembre 2017

«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

Sur disque

«… varied works that possess a rare, original lyricism, in which traditional materials are fragmented and recast…»

Just So dans The WholeNote #24:3 (Canada), novembre 2018

«The texture is thick and creamy, very complex and lovely, the phrases almost conversational, as though discussing and contemplating that aforementioned threshold, but doing so with little apprehension. It ends with quiet acceptance.»

Gyula Csapó: Déjà? Kojâ? dans The Squid’s Ear (ÉU), octobre 2018

«History has been made.»

Just So dans All About Jazz (ÉU), octobre 2018

«It’s an immensely satisfying, soft kind of almost-lullaby, a fine ending to a superb recording.»

Just So dans Just outside (ÉU), septembre 2018

«Trip, en quatre mouvements asymétriques, entraîne l’auditeur dans un voyage hallucinant…»

Christopher Butterfield: Trip, Gyula Csapó: Déjà? Kojâ? dans Revue & Corrigée #117 (France), septembre 2018

«Quatuor Bozzini make the fiendish technical requirements of playing this piece with finesse all but invisible.»

Just So dans Boring Like A Drill, août 2018

«Cassandra Miller: Just So; O Zomer! CD review — profoundly haunting — 4 stars»

Just So dans The Guardian (RU), août 2018

«Quatuor Bozzini was a stellar choice; their long relationship with the composer, and their ability to make every swell and timbral juxtaposition count in music where they are paramount, renders their interpretations second to none.»

Just So dans Dusted Magazine (ÉU), août 2018

«… the Quatuor Bozzini maintain a clarity of individual articulation, even in the densest passages.»

Gyula Csapó: Déjà? Kojâ? dans Avant Music News, mai 2018

«… a very rewarding and satisfying experience,  revealing an intriguing beauty…»

Gyula Csapó: Déjà? Kojâ? dans Vital #1133 (Pays-Bas), mai 2018
