La presse en parle…

Sur scène

«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

«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

Sur disque

«This version of Disseminate stands among the mightiest episodes met over decades of acquaintance with Niblock’s material. Its character is extraordinarily “in your face”»

Phill Niblock: Baobab dans Touching Extremes (Italie), janvier 2019

«My 40 favorite albums of 2018»

Just So dans Peter Margasak, janvier 2019

«Best Chamber CD»

Bozzini+ dans Sequenza 21 (ÉU), décembre 2018

«… Cassandra Miller’s music has knocked me sideways.»

Just So dans Herald Scotland (RU), décembre 2018

«… 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
