Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen 5 de Diapason
Following on from its highly-acclaimed complete cycle of string quartets from the Viennese School, the Quatuor Diotima reaches new heights in its discography with a recording of some of the most significant works of the 20th century music: the six quartets of Béla Bartok, born out of the different artistic and political influences of the time. “These six quartets give us a genuine overview of the composer’s personal life, from his first disappointment in love to the heartbreaking farewell to his mother and his homeland. The evolution of his musical language is equally spectacular. Starting with a post-Romanticism imbued with folklore, still very present in the first two quartets, the Bartókian identity is fully asserted in the great works of his maturity that are the Third, Fourth and Fifth Quartets, and culminates in the highly individual form of the Sixth Quartet, one great song of despair and nostalgia. […] There is a before and an after Bartók in the quartet world. He renews, reinvents all the issues of the genre, the question of the relationship between the voices of the quartet governing the forms, the search for the ‘little difference’, the search for heterogeneity in so homogeneous a medium.” © Naive Classique

Onderscheidingen Diapason d'or
The versions of Leos Janácek's String Quartet No. 2, "Intimate Letters," heard here are both new. Neither quite delivers the "radical evolution in the character of the work" promised in the booklet (in French and English, with the Alpha label's usual wonderful art-historical essay by Denis Grenier), but both are intriguing. The version concluding the disc uses a viola d'amore, a middle-sized Baroque viol with sympathetic strings that create a sweet, caressing sound entirely appropriate for a work dedicated to the composer's much younger (38 years) mistress. This instrumentation was apparently Janácek's intention, but he gave up on it after rehearsals ran into unspecified problems. Probably players of the rather difficult instrument were scarce indeed in Prague in 1928. Its restoration does draw attention to the active role of the viola part in this constantly expressive quartet, but so does the version played on the first four tracks. This is made from a new edition of the work, drawn from copies of the work used in rehearsals made before Janácek's death. (He never heard it played in public performance.) It differs from the one usually heard in various details, many of them having to do with tempo and tending to emphasize the shifting moods and episodic quality of the work. The String Quartet No. 1, also a product of the composer's old age, is also programmatic; it is based on an episode in a Tolstoy short story. The Quatuor Diotima offers a passionate performance of both quartets that would merit consideration in any case, but sample the viola d'amore's opening utterance at the beginning of track 9, and you may decide, even if you are already a confirmed admirer of Janácek's tense but richly romantic music, that a rehearing of these works is in order. © TiVo

Onderscheidingen Choc du Monde de la Musique
Lucien Durosoir's music is like nothing you have ever heard before. As exemplified in this revelatory Alpha disc of his three string quartets, Durosoir's music is tonal in orientation but often so chromatic it becomes functionally atonal, contrapuntal in texture with lines so free they become virtually independent, and passionate in expression with emotions so powerful they would overwhelm the music if not for the composer's complete control of his materials. Born in 1878, Durosoir had a career as first-rank violinist before the Great War took the 36 year old into the trenches. After surviving the war, Durosoir turned to composition with a passion and produced more than two dozen works in less than 20 years. Neglected by the French musical establishment during the composer's lifetime and ignored after his death in 1955, Durosoir's music has only been rediscovered due to the energetic advocacy of his son and daughter-in-law, and this is only the second disc entirely devoted to his works. Played with amazing confidence and technical assurance by the Quatuor Diotima and recorded in clear, close sound by Alpha, this disc deserves to be heard by everyone who enjoys European chamber music written between the wars. © TiVo

Hi-Res Booklet
Following on Quatuor Diotima’s first excursion into Spanish territory (their 2017 recording of music by Alberto Posadas) this new single-composer addition to its discography shows what remarkable diversity may exist among contemporary composers of the same nationality and generation. Mauricio Sotelo (born 1961) is a highly prolific composer and active participant in the current European scene, whose four string quartets to date, composed between 2002 and 2017, exemplify in many different ways how both flamenco and the music of Luigi Nono – Sotelo’s spiritual master since the 1980s – have consciously influenced his entire oeuvre. Without any trace of folklorism, and with no sense of restrictive constraint, this Madrid composer has nonetheless rooted himself in the dance music of Andalusia, feeding on the heady rhythms of the bulería in Quartets No. 3 and No. 4 – in the latter work he also probes into Beethoven’s Op. 131 Quartet. Sotelo embodies the cante jondo in a slow-moving ritual (Quartet No. 2), deploys subtle percussive effects (in Quartet No. 1 and Quartet No. 2) and adapts traditional thematic and rhythmic material (see Quartet No. 1, which additionally references Luigi Nono and the philosopher poet Giordano Bruno). These quartets continually reflect the alter flamenco or "spectral flamenco" which is Sotelo’s hallmark. He defines himself as a "contemporary composer using the voice of the cantaor flamenco", and with their fiery interpretations the string players of the Quatuor Diotima certainly set his music aflame. © naive classique
