Artists ›› Quartetski

Founded by Pierre-Yves Martel in 2007, Quartetski rethinks and reinterprets the works of great composers in an improvised setting. While staying true to the spirit of these composers, the ensemble uses the compositions as laboratories for sonic experimentation. Ecletic instrumentation and an improvised setting make for a left-field approach to chamber music, that melds styles to arrive at a sometimes chaotic, sometimes challenging and always captivating performance. Listeners familiar with the original compositions will find these experimental re-workings are surprising and exciting, and new ears will be just as engaged and entertained.
