Francois Meimoun writes of this new release: “The transcription of the Goldberg Variations took place within a context of total respect for the original text. No change of notes or rhythms. The transcription is based on an “orchestration” of the text for four string players. As in an orchestra, all the instruments in the string quartet are not systematically required simultaneously: variations for two, three, or four instruments follow in succession. This redistribution of the material enables new lines to be heard that are often difficult to hear within the uniform sound context of the piano or harpsichord. The Goldberg Variations are a model of polyphonic writing, a synthesis of Bach’s art and contrapunctal mastery: the fugue, the canon, the French overture ... Nevertheless, the work cannot be reduced to some mere austere exercise: the dances that permeate the cycle confer a superior dimension of accomplishment to the twilight of the baroque era.” If Ardeo- latin: I burn- is the name of this quartet, then it is also the attitude with which these four young women approach their repertoire; their success underscores this. Founded in 2001 at the heart of the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique et de Danse in Paris, the Quatuor Ardeo today is one of the most prominent French ensembles of its kind. A perfect artistic entity based on constant endeavor, a spirit of harmony, and a great sense of complicity.
