Choosing the name of Giuseppe Maria Cambini, violinist and composer of 155 string quartets, the Quatuor Cambini-Paris testifies to its interest in exploring the stylistic evolutions of the classical and romantic period. Formed in 2007, it is one of the rare string quartets to play on period instruments, strung in gut and with bows suitable for each specific period.
The quartet has performed in the most renowned venues and festivals, including the Frick Collection in New York, the Philips Collection in Washington DC, the Salle Bourgie of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Palazzetto Bru Zane in Venice, the Marble Palace of St. Petersburg, the Opéra Comique, the Auditorium du Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, and many others.
The group’s recordings include among others Gounod’s first complete string quartets on period instruments, Mozart’s six “Haydn” quartets, works by Théodore Gouvy, Félicien David, Hyacinthe Jadin. The quartet’s chamber partners include eminent artists such as Nicolas Baldeyrou, Kristian Bezuidenhout, Christophe Coin, Jean-François Heisser, David Lively, Jérôme Pernoo ou Alain Planès.
At the start of the 2016/17 season, the Quatuor Cambini-Paris embarked on the ambitious project of performing all 68 of Joseph Haydn’s string quartets at the Théâtre de Caen for a period of eight years.
