Beethoven, Mozart




In the press

One of the most impressive chamber music debut recordings of recent years.
The Strad


Vibrant, searching performances from this exciting young period-instrument quartet. The ensemble playing is little short of remarkable: the Beethoven second movement has rarely sounded so haunting, the Mozart finale so exhuberant.
Classical Music

The Chiaroscuro Quartet put period instrument practice to the fore, playing on gut strings, with minimal vibrato and tuning to the lower pitch of A430...It takes a moment to grow accustomed to the unfamiliar timbre but the rewards are immense. The Observer

Pour eux la musique, comme la peinture, est affaire de clair-obscur. Les tempétueux Chiaroscuro dispensent lumière et ténèbres avec brio. 

Avec eux, la musique semble affaire de couleurs et de lumière… un grain sonore et une présence révélant toute la profondeur de jeux des Chiaroscuro.
