Shostakovich Quartet No. 7 (2021)
6min 10s | Hermès Quartet | Arpeggio Films | La Dolce Volta
Julien Hanck (director)
Behind this series of four music videos is the desire to “show” classical music, as it has never been seen. The daring and the avantgarde approach of certain shots take the side of a fully assumed expressionism. The choice of particularly “poignant” works (Janacek, Shostakovich, Mozart, Schubert) and a detailed analysis of the scores by the director allow the public a form of omniscience and an organic proximity with the artists that would not be possible in the framework of a traditional concert.
