The Élysée Quartet was founded in 1995 by former members of two quartets that won the Grand Prix at the Evian International Competition: the Anton and Ysaye Quartets. The unique aspect of the Élysée Quartet lies in the confrontation and assimilation of two different schools: the French school and the Russian school.
These two schools enrich each other and allow a fusion of different ideas, the development of new dimensions in the interpretation of music, and a power of expression of great originality.
"One of the most interesting ensembles today..."
Le Monde de la Musique
"A superbly structured and controlled quartet. A version, all pure grace and eloquence..."
International Record Review (England)
"These musicians, wonderfully complimentary, are on a par with the greatest quartets. The warm atmosphere is a bonus."
The Strad (England)
