the music

Premature death from a stupid bicycle accident, Ernest Chausson, intimate musician, close friend of Claude Debussy, leaves a small number of works bearing all the traces of his sensitive and passionate personality. Created in 1892, the Concert in D major (a title inspired by the old "concerts" of the French 17th century that Chausson particularly admired) summons a violin and a piano soloist in dialogue with a string quartet. Four movements representing as many moods oscillating between joy and tragedy. A centerpiece of French chamber music, it overwhelms the listener with its intense and poetic expression which naturally takes its place in the living room dreamed up by Marcel Proust in La Recherche. Mozart was 16 when he composed a triptych of string quartets which he called Divertimentos (KV 136, 137 and 138), marvelously combining the Italian style with that of his friend Michael Haydn with whom he was in the service of the prince- Archbishop Colloredo in Salzburg.
