Conversation with Cellist Eckart Runge : Artemis was, for me, a lived dream

It was a message that was impossible: The Cellist Eckart Runge and the violinist Anthea Kreston leave this spring, the Artemis Quartet. Oh, no, it was thought, not Runge, something like the breathing soul of the world-famous Berliner ensemble! The Only one since the founding in 1989. The Artemis Quartet will break apart now, you asked? And if not, can it retain its unique style, those risk-taking, which goes to the limits? This burning intensity, the unconditional search for the core of the works, because of the Quartet is the gold right after the goddess of the hunt named?

anyone Who knows string quartets, knows that you can't replace just people, like the orchestras in the Symphony, it would be relatively easy. Quartets form a microcosm, a life and a community of fate, in the minimal changes immediately the entire structure in a new direction.

"Artemis was, for me, a lived dream," says Eckart Runge on the phone from Geneva, where the Quartet plays just the program that it occurs today, Thursday, in the chamber music hall. "A form of life and an artist's concept in which you throw all this could be through music, a Structure, in which everything is agreed to, where it was prepared very much and it is ten Times got back." And yet, this feeling that has accompanied him for decades and worn, there wasn't, at some point, had the rings to the Interpretation of the pieces no longer have the same appeal. The decision had imperceptibly ripened in him, "but with every About-Sleep felt real". In addition, the death of the viola player has the most Friedemann Weigle 2015 leave traces. Although the Quartet had to cope with earlier changes, in 2012, about Prim violinist Natalia Prishepenko from arbitration. "In Friedemann, it was completely different," says Runge. Suddenly a crack was there, and nothing was more like before.

the University of The arts Professor, wants to play more own projects

dedicate their own Older, of course, a role. The question of how much time remains. The 51-Year-old, who is also a Professor at the Berlin UdK, will pay more attention to their own projects, in which he provides musical Genres in new contexts. With the pianist Jacques Ammon, and he has, for years, the Duo "cello project", the two have recorded, among other things, the jazzy inspired second cello Sonata of Nikolai Kapustin (born 1937). Runge can still feel a lot of energy into "new power feeling" is the famous name of Beethoven's third movement of his string Quartet in a minor, op. 132.

A year passed between the internal and public communication. All were stunned, sad, and had to re-sort. Then Anthea Kreston in the process, decided for 2016, as the second violin to go also. This probably had to do with his decision, thinks Runge. He was something of a link, the two knew each other before. In addition, Kreston is characterized as an American of a different mentality: "In the case of commitment in classical music, one thinks in Europe in decades in the United States rather in years."

in Spite of the breaks had quickly been clear: With the Artemis Quartet, it should go further. "First of all, Vineta Sareika and Gregor Sigl feel so much Hunger for this form of life." A few samples later, who replaced Runge and Kreston. And so it will look like, the new, more feminine Quartet: On the Prim violin Sareika and the 32-year-old Suyoen Kim alternate in the future, a feature that has been practiced by the Ensemble. Gregor follows Sigl as now service the oldest remains on the viola, and Runge on Cello, the 28-year-old Dutchwoman Harriet Krijgh, which has taken over in 2017 by Janine, the management of the chamber music festival Utrecht Jansen.

The dialectic of the individual and the collective is part of the DNA

As a "first-class artist, lovable, grounded, full of intelligence and charm, an Anti-Diva" describes Eckart Runge, his successor. Price at the end of words it is also used for Suyoen Kim: "a Warm, cool headed, calm and quick-witted." For your change to Artemis Quartet Kim is their concert master to point at the Berlin concert house orchestra. Also, Vineta Sareika has refused in 2012 for a Position in Antwerp. The desire for adventure, the willingness to open the Form, it will connect both of the Prime violinists in the future.

"We have always been the dialectic of the individual and the collective and the individual, a lot of space," says Runge. This is deeply rooted in the DNA of Artemis, and will also be passed on, since he is sure. Maybe you do not need to see it so dramatically: string quartets form, with a time lag, the social structures in which they exist. That is to say: How society as a whole, they are also bound to be less regional, more democratic – and no longer stay together as long.

the audience is changing, looking forward to New. Quartets, the decades long in the same occupation, are not automatically better: "the age of the wine can also tilt", has identified Runge in 2012, in the daily mirror interview. So the concert is tonight the last in Berlin, the Artemis Quartet is experience in the current occupation to, among other things, with Schubert's string Quartet "death and The maiden". 15. May of the "handover concert", whose second half is completely denied by the New. Before the break, Eckart Runge is still in the process, as the second Cellist, in Brahms’ first string sextet. But then even as a guest.
