Chronatic Quartet

When Saint-Saens invited his guests - all famous colleagues from past and present - to the masked ball, he gave each one a characteristic costume: Paganini becomes a kangaroo, Jacques Offenbach finds himself as a turtle with his Cancan in slow motion, the virtuoso Frederic Chopin mutates into a wild animal ... There are also chickens, fish, a lion and the world-famous swan. The Chronatic Quartet pays homage to all these figures and their host and puts some fossils in their place with their individual interpretation. This is not a note-for-note transcription of the "animal defile", but its own compositional interpretation.
