KuuB Concert: Flare Quartet

The Flare Quartet, formed in 2020, consists of two Dutchmen, a Spaniard and a Canadian. Their mission is to deliver 20th and 21st century composed music in a fresh, innovative and accessible way. At KuuB they present a vivid narrative experience with four very different pieces.

From the atmospheric landscapes of Philip Glass’s 5th string quartet – which was the catalyst for the ensemble’s formation – to the amazingly short-lived textures of György Kurtag, the joyful and earthy sonic imagery of Jamaican composer Eleanor Alberga and the world premiere of a brand new jazz-inspired piece that Peter Davis wrote for Flare Quartet.
