Ragazze Quartet @ String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam.
From 27 January to 3 February 2018 the Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ will host the opening edition of the String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam. The artistic director invited us to investigate the common ground and differences between the string quartet and human voice with members of the Damask Ensemble during three editions of the String Quartet Biennale. During each edition a new area will be singled out and placed under the spotlight.
In 2018 (30 January, 2.15 PM in Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, Amsterdam) the Ragazze Quartet will begin with an uncultivated primal sound, performing works by Sculthorpe, Golijov, Shaw, Bartók and Nas together with the soprano Katharine Dain and mezzo-soprano Marine Fribourg.
