Founded in 1996, the Diotima Quartet is as interested in the grand classical repertoire as it is in contemporary composers. What binds their multiple yearnings together is an urgent need for renewal.
Just like the Quatuor, Bartók constantly pursued his search for renewal, drawing on traditional popular music to give birth to a unique style of art music. One century after Beethoven, Bartók's string quartets has made him one of the masters of the genre.
The six string quartets marked Bartók’s life between 1908 and 1939, revealing the composer’s stylistic evolution in perpetual becoming. From the first post-romantic quartet to the sixth, a farewell song before the exile to the United States, this corpus also reflects the transformations of a tormented century.
