About the Event

Perhaps we can all agree that the French are inherently cooler than the rest of us. After all, this is a people who invented black turtlenecks and Existentialism, while simultaneously perfecting the breakfast pastry. And at the top of the list of “cool things from France” is the Ébène Quartet, perhaps the only group in history that can smoothly transition from Bartók to barbershop harmonies, Brahms to Bruce Springsteen. Here, they’ll focus on Beethoven as part of their multi-year cycle of his complete string quartets, while also taking the time to perform their signature rendition of the Fauré quartet – the first time it’s ever been performed at PUC!



Over the years, PUC has brought in ensembles from all around the world. In addition to the Ébène Quartet (France), we’ve hosted the debuts of the Hagen String Quartet (Germany), the Budapest String Quartet (Hungary), the Danish String Quartet (Denmark), the Tokyo String Quartet (Japan), the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir (one guess where they’re from…), and many more.
