Quatuor Ébène
Quatuor Ébène: (L-R) Adrien Boisseau, viola; Pierre Colombet, violin; Raphaël Merlin, cello; Gabriel Le Magadure, violin

On the newest Encore Houston, Chamber Music Houston presents Quatuor Ébène in a performance at Rice University. The concert features works by Mozart and Beethoven, who have quite a few string quartets to their name, and concludes with the one and only string quartet by Claude Debussy. The music on the program ranges from the dramatic, to the light-hearted, to the melancholic, and the difference of over 100 years between the Mozart and Debussy quartets show how the genre had evolved over time.
