The Quatuor Kitgut approaches music, like a growing number of quartets, from the historical perspective: they try to reconstruct, the sound and the technique of the time in which the music was written. An experience that is as authentic as possible. But with Amandine Beyer on first violin – “[her performances] take you away from the marked paths, tickle your imagination, cling to your dreams and create a joyful feeling of happiness.” – this quartet is anything but a history lesson.

In 2020 they partially released this programme on CD. English music from before the string quartet, linked to Haydn’s opus 71/2. The bar is set high for both string quartets and historical performances, but the relatively new Quatuor Kitgut received nothing but praise for their recordings. If they take even a fraction of the sparkle and fun of those recordings to the Biennale, this promises to be the perfect Sunday morning.
