The Ébène Quartet

The versatile and genre-bending Ébène Quartet will be featured on “A Weekend in Paris,” with a jazz concert at 6:30 pm on Saturday, Aug. 18, and a concert of classical string quartet repertoire on Sunday,  Aug. 19, at 4:00 pm. Ébène (pronounced ay-ben) is the French word for ebony, and the quartet plays contemporary jazz that has roots in the Parisian Hot Club sound of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli. The quartet’s members are conservatory-trained string players, but the cellist plays piano in a jazz quartet, the second violinist is a drummer, and the violist also plays guitar. From “promising young ensemble,” the Quatuor Ébène has grown to become one of the foremost quartets on the international scene. Recently it was selected to take part in the BBC’s “New Generation Artists” program, and it has been heard throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States. In 2010, the quartet released an album of jazz and world music titled Fiction.

He has worked with Gerry Mulligan, Wynton Marsalis, Benny Carter, Clark Terry, and Frank Wess, and has been an accompanist for Tony Bennett, Carol Sloane, and Sheila Jordan. Ms. Rosnes is recognized as one of the premier jazz pianists and composers of her generation. She has toured and recorded with many jazz masters, including stints with the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, Buster Williams, James Moody, Ron Carter, and Bobby Hutcherson, among others. In 2010 Mr. Charlap and Ms. Rosnes released Double Portrait on the Blue Note label. Downbeat magazine wrote of the duo’s recording, “The counterpoint and compatibilities are so perfectly balanced, the selections and arrangements so handsome, that Double Portrait is a prize.”

Mr. Hersch was nominated for two 2012 Grammy Awards and has won the Coup de Coeur of the Charles Cros Academy in France. More than 70 of his compositions have been recorded, and Mr. Hersch has been awarded a Rockefeller Fellowship, grants from Chamber Music America, The National Endowment for the Arts, and Meet the Composer, as well as seven composition residencies at The MacDowell Colony, in addition to a wide variety of National Public Radio programs and CBS Sunday Morning with Dr. Billy Taylor.
