Henri Dutilleux Ainsi la nuit
Almost every morning during the String Quartet Biennale, various events will shed light on diverse aspects of the quartet. The Coffee Talk, which focuses on personal views on the quartet, will be followed by a masterclass, lecture or talk involving a more in-depth approach.
Dutilleux wrote Ainsi la nuit for the Juilliard String Quartet; however, the work was quickly embraced by many other quartets. It is a modern classic, for which the members of the Juilliard String Quartet – in the meantime a completely new combination of players – are the ideal guides.
