The Debussy String Quartet’s new album is available !

Marc Mellits’s 3rd, 4th, and 5th string quartets have been recorded together for the very first time by Quatuor Debussy. Recorded at La Crypte in Lagorce, France in the company of the contemporary American composer, the new album from the French string quartet is out Friday 19 May 2017 on Evidence Classics.

Sometimes timeless, sometimes disorientating and hectic, Marc Mellits’ music skillfully mixes sleek and diaphanous textures with wild sections. In the wake on the American repetitive composers such as Steve Reich and Philip Glass, the energy of his works is reminiscent of rock music. His three string quartets are no exception, taking the listener on an unpredictable and adventurous sonic journey.
