Exceptionally high standard of music. Beautiful surroundings. Great evening.

This was the very first concert I ever attended in the UAE. Quartet Modigliani were absolutely wonderful. Their articulation and tone were excellent. I particularly enjoyed the second part of the concert and their interpretation of the Mendelssohn String Quartet in F minor. The way the cello, viola and violins melted to nearly recreate the sound of an organ was outstanding to say the least. The diminuendos and crescendos were also amazing. I did appreciate that the programme was printed and put on the seats prior to the concert.
One of the world's most dynamic, young string quartet, the award-winning Quartet Modigliani, with regular appearances in some of the best venues, including Carnegie Hall, will finally performing in Dubai. The foursome have found vocal harmony together since 2003, and have been described by critics as one of the best string quartets in the world. Their performance in Dubai as part of the Dubai Concert Committee's World Classical Music Series will make for an entertaining evening of musical precision and emotion.
