About Quatuor Thymos
When Paris-based Thymos Quartet visited the United States Washington Post called their Kennedy Center performance “detailed down to the last atom, and overflowing with human experience.” Founded in 2001 to share intense moments of music with wide audiences, The Thymos visit Durham, Washington and Weymouth with a program of Schubert and French composer Olivier Dejours. For the concert at Washington Kennedy center, they are joined by the elegant pianist and conductor Christoph Eschenbach, hailed by the Los Angeles Times for his “crystalline tone” and “hypnotic rhythmic animation” in his interpretations of the music of Schubert.
