Opéra Sans Diva

opéra sans diva pochette album

Opéra Sans Diva

For this opera program, no diva, no coloratura, no baritone-martinist, but a quartet of multi-voiced clarinets that does justice to some of the most emblematic pages of the operatic repertoire.

Johann Strauss – Ruggero Leoncavallo – Giuseppe Verdi – Jules Massenet – Nikolaï Rimsky Korsakov – Amilcare Ponchielli – Károly Goldmark – Giacomo Puccini …

Malinconia

Malinconia pochette album

Malinconia

The Quatuor Anches Hantées imagines how Mozart and Beethoven would have written if they had had access to modern clarinets. “The Quatuor Anches Hantées demonstrates an extraordinary flexibility and effortlessly demonstrates astounding technique.”

Les Esquisses (Sketches) has turned out to be one of the best scores from Philippe Hersant (born in 1948) and is without a doubt the jewel of the album.

Ballabile

Ballabile pochette album

Ballabile

Recorded at the Auditorium Saint Pierre des Cuisines in Toulouse in February 2017

This album is the fruit of 15 years of hard work and research. It’s a labor of not only love, but good humor! Made in the image of the QAH; simple, warm, relaxed, without a main underlying theme.

The first movements of the quartets of Debussy and Revel respond to the works for strings by Mozart and Mendelssohn. The orchestra is celebrated with Strauss, De Falla and Rimsky-Korsakov, and the piano is represented through the miniatures of Ravel and Chabrier.

Suite & Funk

Suite & Funk

Suite et Funk is the combination of unedited transcripts and unpublished original compositions from the end of the 20th Century and beginning of the 21st century. This is the perfect compromise between French musical tradition and American funk, the genius of the older generation – Debussy, Ravel – combined with the fresh sound of the new wave – Connesson, Dubugnon.

This record is like an XXL foie gras with barbecue sauce menu. It rocks !

#3

#3 pochette album

#3

Without a doubt, the third opus, soberly entitled #3, is the most serious. Recorded in 2010, a few years after the quartet became the first Paris Conservatory laureate in this formation, this disc dares to tackle the gravity of Brahms, the lyricism of Puccini and the ardor of Dvořák.

Transcriptions of Bernstein’s Candide Overture and Smetana’s Dance of the Comedians quickly became QAH hits.
