Night of the Quartet®

For this 3rd edition, the Night of Quartet once again invests the mythical "Salle des Nymphéas" and is fully in keeping with the contemporary project of the Musée de l'Orangerie and the Nuit blanche.
This year, the program is feminine. The best European ensembles such as the Akilone Quartets, Ardeo, Arod, Tchalik, or Yako will perform masterpieces from the repertoire of yesterday and today.
Each concert will also be the opportunity to discover a world premiere of a work written by composers from around the world including Florence Baschet, Michele Reverdy, Leilei Tian or Xu Yi and commissioned by ProQuartet for the occasion.
The time of a night music lovers and curious taste the art of string quartet in an atmosphere both relaxed and poetic.
