Sur scène

«Monday sees new-music royalty, the Bozzini Quartet, play music by Michael Oesterle and Ana Sokolovic…»

The New York Times (ÉU), août 2019

«The Quatuor Bozzini belongs to that select group of fearless string quartets — 4****»

The Guardian (RU), mars 2019

«the recondite elegance of Cassandra Miller and Linda Catlin Smith, as played by the Bozzinis»

National Sawdust (ÉU), décembre 2018

«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

«Beyond excellent mainstays like the JACK Quartet, the Talea Ensemble, and Quatuor Bozzini, this year’s festival embraces vital musicians whose work falls outside the classical-music lineage.»

The New Yorker (ÉU), août 2018

Sur disque

«Very impressive, super-solidly played by the Bozzini plus one — a heady outing.»

Simon Martin: Musique d’art dans The Squid’s Ear (ÉU), septembre 2019

«… Kim Myhr is een artiest die je zeer bewust geen gemakkelijk brokje vlees aanbiedt…»

pressing clouds passing crowds dans Musiczine (Belgique), juillet 2019

«Cette fresque auditive de haute voltige nous chavire aux quatre coins de notre corps, jouant avec notre confort, tiraillant nos méninges. Musique d’art est une escapade sonore intransigeante, défiant son public à plonger au plus profond de lui-même.»

Simon Martin: Musique d’art dans Mes enceintes font défaut (Québec), juin 2019

«The entire Just So disc gets its life from the bows of the amazing Quatuor Bozzini. This ensemble performs the most austere music with maximum affect, but somehow never disrupts such music’s formality and poise.»

Just So dans Tempo (RU), juin 2019

«Bozzini+ delivers masterful playing and a diverse sense of beauty.»

Bozzini+ dans Tempo (RU), juin 2019

«The Canadian ensemble Quatuor Bozzini are really something special. […] And they do all of this with great aplomb and, even more impressively, refinement.»

Phill Niblock: Baobab dans Free Jazz (Belgique), mai 2019

«Playing with timbre and pitch the music deeply resonates, and is very expressive and emotional in its own way. In a great performance by Quator Bozzini and Maranda

Simon Martin: Musique d’art dans Vital #1183 (Pays-Bas), mai 2019

«On floating layer cake Norwegian percussionist/composer Ingar Zach takes two of his compositions and reimagines them through creative reorchestration.»

floating layer cake dans Avant Music News, mai 2019

«Sterk aan te bevelen.»

floating layer cake dans Dark Entries (Belgique), avril 2019

«The creeping tension of the work lends a sense of movement so directionless and gradual, it feels like the piece is moving backward at times, forcing the listener into themselves, somewhere between a state of trance and hypersensitivity, and when Caroline Bergvall begins to recite a text about departure and in a familiar second person, it lands like a sermon for all your former selves.»
