Based on a foundation of 18 years of experience, concerts in France and all over the world, the Anches Hantées Quartet (Quatuor Anches Hantées / QAH) is a unique and leading formation, developing its repertoire through transcription and creation of works of music.
In addition to gracing the most beautiful auditorium stages and festivals in France such as Arsenal de Metz, Salle Gaveau, Opéra de Tours, Salle Cortot, Festival Radio France – Montpellier Occitanie, Flâneries de Rs, and Folle Journée de Nantes, this authentic cultural player has also performed at the event halls of St Jean de Rives, and Juvisy, la Halle aux grains de Lavaur, and the INJS (National Institute for the young deaf), as well as in various prisons and community centers.
For its 18th anniversary in 2020, alongside Malinconia, the QAH will focus on spreading new roots. Building upon the tradition and history of the string quartet to support their present and future artistic engagement, the QAH is boldly evolving to meet the next big challenge with finesse.
Forging its own path as a catalyst for discovery and rediscovery, establishing a flawless link between its repertoire and its audience.
This very audience receives with open arms the interpretations of four musicians, animated by the pleasure of playing, giving, sharing and inventing.
The 2020 season will unveil their rendition of “Ma Mère l’Oye – Voyage au Pays des contes” (Mother Goose – Journey to the land of fairy tales), revealing two creations by Peirani and Dubugnon, a new opera without a diva, and a new opus for strings derived from Beethoven and Fanny Mendelssohn.
