New CD release "Attacca"

One of the most brilliant works in the quartet literature, an exciting new composition based on it, and a virtuoso award-winning ensemble: the Aris Quartet's GENUIN CD Attacca bursts with energy from the very first moment.

Highly acclaimed with awards such as "Echo Rising Stars" 2019/2020, the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, and "BBC New Generations Artists" 2018-2020, the Aris Quartet juxtaposes Beethoven's "Russian" Quartet Op. 59, No. 1, with Gerald Resch's String Quartet No. 3.

Gerald Resch's intention was to build a kind of "adjacent property" to Beethoven. The Aris Quartet vividly brings out both the connections and differences with its nuanced playing.

 

The CD will be available from May 07, 2021, for example on amazon.com or jpc.de.

The Aris Quartet at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg

ECHO – this is the name of the network set up by Europe's leading concert halls, a cooperation that aims to work on joint initiatives and a mutual exchange of ideas. Every year the 22 members nominate six outstanding young artists and send them off on a large-scale tour.

 

The current »Rising Stars« appear at the Elbphilharmonie every year in the space of a week. Concerts cannot be given in front of a large audience this time round, but everyone can still enjoy the festival: the concerts are being transferred to the internet, and can be watched as a stream, starting on Tuesday 26 January at 20.30 with the Aris Quartett.

Each stream starts with a short talk from the artist, followed by the actual concert.

 

You can rewatch the concert stream here!
