What the Sacre du printemps was to orchestral music, Debussy's string quartet was to chamber music. Debussy made short shrift of the rather entrenched structures of the string quartet. He wrote a work full of exotic harmonies and melodies, and a floating, unstable rhythm with which he opened a new world of sound. Not for the first time, Debussy left his critics in despair in the concert hall after the premiere. In Three Pieces for string quartet, Stravinsky in turn bridges the gap between the unpolished and direct style of Petrushka and the Sacre du printemps to the more structured style of his neo-classical period. The jury about the Animato Quartet: 'Four top players with a vibrant energy, they captivate you from the first note! The quartet serves each other and the music and is the great promise of the Dutch string quartets.'
The lunch concerts are an accessible way to get acquainted with different music genres.
Students from ArtEZ and Codart and young talented musicians together provide a varied programme, from chamber music to jazz. Lunch is of course also possible. Soup and sandwiches are available for a fee in the Muziekcentrum. The concerts last about an hour and start at 12:30.
A ticket costs 5 euros, the proceeds go to the students.
