When the night comes, everything changes! Ligeti opens his Métamorphoses nocturnes and Beethoven plays one of his finest string quartets.
What do you hear in the silence of the night? Nervous strings, heady pulsations, a metamorphosis is at work to surprise us until the last movement punctuated by almost unreal glissandi. Because yes, we are in Ligeti’s nocturnal dream. It is also an incandescent stream that runs through the third string quartet that Beethoven dedicates to Count Razumowsky. Alternately exuberant and meditative, it takes us on a powerful sonic trajectory, made up of disturbances and lights. The finale, particularly unleashed, confirms the immense register of the composer and leaves us with this strange feeling of having swirled between shadows and ether.
