N°14 | FARRAGO
FARRAGO
If there is something the Quatuor Diotima enjoys, it is putting things into perspective: from a point of view of creation and repertoire, but also musical eras and composers. There is something like a heady Proustian scent in the air when it comes to this concert.

Ravel, in his very particular relation with the musical past, serves as a model for Proust’s famous Vinteuil Sonata. Ravel’s String Quartet in F major (1914) testifies to his formal aspirations and his taste for modal writing, yet introducing tritones and harmonizing the whole tone scale…
A century later, Proust still haunts the composers – it is easy to hear the echo of In Search of Lost Time in the great Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa’s Distant Voices (2013).In the case of Gérard Pesson’s Farrago (2013), his fourth piece for quartet, the reference to Proust is overt: The music in Farrago is constituted of a multitude of micro-worlds caught in incessant circulation, each element reappearing distorted by another, each sound sliding towards the next, so that each musical object is outlined and reshaped by its own resurfacing.”
