Solem Quartet

"Elegance in dissonance" SOLEM was born in 2012 thanks to the pleasure shared by its founders, friends and colleagues from the Conservatoire de musique Neuchâtelois, to play together, discuss, joke and to pick freely within the most beautiful pages of the great chamber music repertoire around a good coffee and croissants. This quartet evolves willingly according to the works by inviting musicians such as Élodie Favre soprano, Marc Jaermann or François Guye on the cello. It accompanies with the same happiness the mezzo-soprano Brigitte Balleys. Solem extends its repertoire from the Art of the Fugue to contemporary premiere while passing by works of Franz Schubert, Johannes Brahms, Gabriel Fauré, Maurice Ravel, Leoš Janáček, Dmitri Shostakovich. A CD recording has been released with the quartets of Franz Schubert’s Rosamunde and Quartettsatz, as well as Pascal Desarzens’s quartet "Prendre Le temps qui s’égraine".
