5.0 out of 5 stars French brilliance
These French classical musicans bring their dazzling performance skills and the emotional intelligence they've gained from working on their historical string quartet repertoire to a sublime CD. The mixture is so rich - from freeform jazz to rearrangements of such American classics as 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' and 'Some Day My Prince Will Come' which give a whole new -...

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Many Producers?
This is a enthralling album presenting some great musicianship. It has however one flaw and that is there is nothing to link the tracks together. As such it is like a sampler or even a demo and therefore it does not fit easily any occasion or mood. I am not sure what the purpose of the album is? Maybe just to show off the talents of 'Quatuor Ebene' and that it achieves...

These French classical musicans bring their dazzling performance skills and the emotional intelligence they've gained from working on their historical string quartet repertoire to a sublime CD. The mixture is so rich - from freeform jazz to rearrangements of such American classics as 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' and 'Some Day My Prince Will Come' which give a whole new - and sometimes disturbing - interpretation to well-loved songs. But 'Baghdad Café' and 'Lilac Wine' just make the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end. A wonderful, subtle and infinitely rewarding set. (And in the sleeve photos they just look like great guys having fun!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Quatuor Ebene's delightful letting down of hair., 7 Dec 2010
This review is from: Fiction (Audio CD)
I bought this after hearing a chance track (The Beatles' "Come Together") on Radio 3 one morning. Some pop interpretations, many jazz ones, taken from the quartet's off-duty fun pieces which they frequently feature in encores at their serious recitals. All pieces are earnestly and imaginitively arranged and are played with real passion - a really entertaining and satisfying album.

As such it is like a sampler or even a demo and therefore it does not fit easily any occasion or mood. I am not sure what the purpose of the album is? Maybe just to show off the talents of 'Quatuor Ebene' and that it achieves. However part of the job of a producer is to tie the whole thing together. Judging by booklet there appears to be several producers and there in possibly lies the problem.
