The Quatuor Beat (France)

Winner of the 2012 Public Award of the Young Audiences Music Awards (YAMA) in Brussels and the Special Jury Award, Berlin Junge Ohren

“A stunning journey through the world of rhythm” - Kreiszeitung, Germany

A wacky panorama of percussion where mallets fly like bumblebees!

Four dashing percussionists become moonstruck, the cue for a host of humorous routines involving different instruments and rhythms. Creativity meets astounding teamwork as the madcap musicians use virtually everything - even their own bodies - to tap out fresh twists on Boléro, Omphalo Centric Lecture, and other favourites in their quest.

Employing drums, cymbals, triangle, marimbas, vibraphones, glockenspiel, and more, multi-award-winning maestros The Quatuor Beat bring together great music and laughter in their interactive and highly entertaining show. Look and listen out for a phenomenal rendition of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee too, as this striking gig hits all the right notes with spectators big and small!
