Beschrijving van het evenement
Gara Quartet

Over dit evenement

Gara Quartet was founded in 2020 by four young musicians that felt the necessity of devoting themselves to the Historical Informed Practice with freshness and passion. Although the founding of the quartet might seem quite recent, the four members have worked together already for many years in different ensembles all over Europe.

The fundamental milestones of this ensemble are, on the one hand, to explore intensively the origin of the string quartet repertoire - in which research and work with musicological sources play a central role - and on the other hand, to give new impulses to the musical dialogue along the rhetoric guidelines with new performing perspectives and sound conception. The challenge of finding other ways of playing but keeping a historically informed background is an exciting task for the quartet, as is the search for its own identity.

After studying in many different places like The Hague, Cologne, Trossingen and Frankfurt – Gara Quartet chose The Hague and Cologne as the starting point for the ensemble. Its four members work regularly with important orchestras in the Early Music scene, such as Concerto Köln, Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Le Concert des Nations, Bach Vereniging, Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century among others. They have received lessons from renowned performers of the field such as Shunske Sato, Amandine Beyer, Richard Gwilt, Olivier Fourès, Roel Dieltiens, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Petra Müllejans and from ensembles like the Casals and Quiroga Quartets.

Their interest in experiencing and researching deeply the possibilities of the string quartet, together with their desire to discover new sound layers, lead the Gara Quartet to display an energetic and vibrant playing, taking full advantage of the richness gut strings offer and the liveliness of historical bows.

Future engagements include a CD recording recovering Spanish musical patrimony and concerts in The Netherlands, Germany and Spain.

PROJECT Madrid 1770

Around 1770 the Spanish capital was the country's cultural hotspot. La “Gaceta de Madrid“, the official newsletter of the Goverment led by King Carlos III, announced in July 1774 the publication of the six string quartets Op. 3 by Manuel Canales (1747-1784, Toledo), a shining example of Canales' masterful skills of European Classicism. "La Gaceta de Madrid" not only registered the musical activity of Spanish composers, but also regularly mentioned news and events involving some of the most prominent European artists.

We can find a report about the arrival in Spain of the six string quartets Op.20 by Joseph Haydn in December 1775. These compositions are, among other works, the pieces that earned him the nickname of "The Father of the String Quartet". Thanks to this journal we know how the masterpieces of European Classicism came to the hands of spanish composers like Canales, leading their way towards this new and fresh language.

Haydn's and Canales' pieces were not the only string quartets being released in Madrid at that time. Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805) wrote his Op.8 and 9 in 1770 during his period in the Spanish capital. In these works the cello was freed from its traditional accompanying role of “basso continuo” while the Spanish scent clearly impregnated Boccherini's composition style.
