Livre pour quatuor (Ia & Ib)
String Quartet in A minor D 804 "Rosamunde"
Lyric Suite for String Quartet
The young Pierre Boulez described Alban Berg’s Lyric Suite as “one of the greatest masterworks of the repertoire.” The piece had a major influence on his only string quartet, Livre pour quatuor. Shortly before his death in 2016, Boulez revised the score in collaboration with the Quatuor Diotima. The Paris-based ensemble now brings its interpretation to the Quartet Week at the Pierre Boulez Saal, together with the Lyric Suite and Schubert’s “Rosamunde” Quartet.
