Le quatuor à cordes op. 4 de Turina à la lumière du contexte musical parisien de l’époque

Abstract : Joaquin Turina composed his string quartet op. 4 in 1911, in Paris. He lived for six years in the French capital and studied composition with d'Indy at the Schola Camtorum. His involvement and his numerous activities in the Parisian musical life led him to acquainted with personalities from the world of music such as Debussy, Ravel and Fauré in particular, and to get to know his fellow countryman Albeniz, in addition to Indy and the other French and foreign composers studying like him at the Schola. These various acquaintances and rich musical exchanges played a key role in the composition of the string quartet op. 4. Building on the Parisian context of the time, the article aims at revealing different facets of this quartet: how Turina reclaimed the cyclical processes in the entire quartet, following the instruction received from Indy, how he designed the forms and harmony, how he wrote for string instruments. All these points are stressed with regard to contemporary French string quartets, present in concert programs. The point is to better understand the various influences that Turina was able to receive and to define more precisely his identity and his style, then in full development.
