ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This unique debut album represents an exploration of the limitless possibilities of the cello. The
quartet’s members: Blaise Déjardin, Adam Esbensen, Mihail Jojatu and Alexandre Lecarme perform a
wide-ranging repertoire while rotating the role of leader for each piece. Blaise Déjardin has worked
diligently to expand the quartet library by writing new arrangements to complement existing and newly
commissioned works.
The quartet’s members hail from France, Romania and the United States and were drawn together in
2008 as members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. This is the first time in the history of the BSO
that such an ensemble has been formed and it has quickly drawn an international following on the heels
of their debut concert at Tanglewood in July of 2010.

Fresh Take on Classical Strings
What a breath of fresh air! Thoughtfully chosen pieces, many old favorites, arranged and performed with a richly unique sound by four talented cellists. Every note resonated anew. Can't wait to hear more from this quartet!

Lovely
I listened to a few samples of tunes well known to me and was immediately entranced by this quartet's take on them. The cello has a wonderful range and four in concert make a beautiful noise. I purchased the album impulsively and when my musically trained girlfriend got home, she fell in love with it too.
