  • Chiaroscuro Quartet

    Mozart - String Quartet N°15 (allegro)

“This young period-instrument group are well named. Both performances are remarkable for extreme dynamic range … an arresting disc” David Cairns / Sunday Times, February 2015

“Daring, emotionally uncompromising playing from Chiaroscuro, with first violinist Alina Ibragimova taking risks with the recitative like writing, the quartet never shying away from the bold, bare sound they can produce with their gut string instruments, especially in the opening of Mozart’s D Minor quartet, which is the coupling, but it’s also the musicianship of great warmth as I hope you heard … a really intelligent piece of programming.” Andrew McGregor / BBC Radio 3 CD Review

« Une interprétation véritablement habitée qui rend compte au plus près de toute la richesse expressive de ces deux quatuors, dans une mise en miroir pertinente. Un troisième disque très réussi. » L’Education Musicale

« A string quartet is a four-way marriage of equals, but when one of those equals is one of the most exciting soloists of her generation you can expect fireworks. » Harriet Smith / Sinfini Music

« It’s as if the Chiaroscuro’s performances, nimble, febrile and disturbing, expose the connections rather than the differences – as if Mozart, in his harmonic explorations, is reaching out to the musical world in which, decades later, Mendelssohn would mature. The group’s unadorned sound is a shock to the ears of the best, most arresting kind. The disc offers a fascinating return to well-known works. Fiona Maddocks / The Guardian

“The historically concerned players of Alina Ibragimova’s Chiaroscuro Quartet bring the works closer together than you might expect, handling the Mendelssohn in a way that’s more tonally austere than usual, the Mozart in a way that’s more personal and romantic. Common to both is the deep consideration to which the music has been subjected, and the players’ willingness to embrace unorthodox outcomes.” Michael Dervan – Irish Times,  March 2015
