16ème Festival de Pâques de Deauville

Quintet for strings and piano No2H 298 by Bohuslav Martinu. The score was completed by the Czech composer in the U.S.A. in 1944. Almost half an hour of an incredibly dense music, which the young performers explore with contagious jubilation. The difficult piano part is magisterially played by Guillaume Vincent: he is ever-present, while never intrusive, and he offers his four partners ( A. Coeytaux, A. Soumm, Adrien Boisseau et Bruno Philippe, the cellist, is one of the new and excellent recruits of the Festival!) “the spinal column” around which they create an irresistible interpretation that is both intricately detailed and exuberantly poetic.
