The world premiere of final complete version of Boulez Livre pour quatuor. As you know Pierre Boulez has promised to Quatuor Diotima to finish Livre IV for them, but this did not happen in the end. Philippe Manoury with the help of musicologist Jean-Louis Leleu has now finished the piece and now the full version can be offered to promoters.
Quatuor Diotima has now officially been named “artiste-en-résidence” of Radio France, which is a big deal for France as it affects THREE (!) seasons. They will be able to offer their programs, those will include chamber music concerts, pieces with Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, programs with musicians of the orchestra, commissions, French premieres, world premieres and recordings.
