Quatuor Tchalik: Avantgarde @ Lobe Space Berlin

Quatuor Tchalik will present their new album at the Lobe Block in Berlin on 30 May 2024.

The Quatuor Tchalik presents music from the French and Ukrainian avant-garde of the 20th century. Growing up in a Russian-French household with Ukrainian roots, the siblings made music together from an early age.

On their latest album, titled “Music of the Youth” (Label Alkonost), they combine early works by Maurice Ravel and Boris Lyatoshynsky and place them in an artistic dialogue. Ravel’s string quartet sparkles with youthful energy and combines traditional forms with innovative sound colours, while Lyatoshynsky’s quartets represent a powerful connection between Slavic tradition and modernity. The graphic design of the album is inspired by the works of Alexandra Exter (1882–1949), an avant-garde artist of the Ukrainian art scene at the beginning of the 20th century. The Paris-based Quatuor Tchalik also utilises this dimension for the aesthetic presentation of the album, thus demonstrating the close connection between music and visual art.

Presentation: Fanny Tanck
Concert start: 7:30 p.m.
Lobe Canteen opens at 6 p.m. and is also available after the concert.
