PLEYEL QUARTET KÖLN
»Sleeps a song in things abounding
that keep dreaming to be heard:
Earth’es tunes will start resounding
if you find the magic word.«
These famous lines by Joseph von Eichendorff (engl. transl. Walter A. Aue) paraphrase the critics response to the Pleyel Quartet’s recordings with a poetic notion. The gut strings with their delicate responsiveness and particular wealth of colour, the subtly nuanced use of vibrato, the vivid phrasing, and the articulation next to highest technical sophistication – all together provide for the new listening experiences found in the interpretations by the Pleyel Quartet. In addition to the well known works of the canon, works previously unheard of, composed by largely forgotten or undervalued “Kleinmeister” are also met with enthusiastic response by the audience and critics.
