Papineau-Couture’s compositional style evolved gradually from polymodal and polytonal neoclassicism to total atonal chromaticism. His work is fascinating for its exploration of sonic colours, and for its subtle combination of metrical freedom with strong rhythms to support clearly articulated melodic elements.
The Molinari Quartet celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Jean Papineau-Couture with a new recording of his four string quartets and his trio Slanò.
The String Quartet No.4 was only discovered in the spring of 2016, when the archivist of the Quebec branch of the Canadian Music Centre noticed an unfinished work among the papers which the composer’s daughter, Nadia Papineau-Couture, had recently donated to the centre.
