This award-winning documentary looks at one of the most exciting string quartets in the world, the French group Quatuor Ebène.
Following them as they tour through Italy, Austria and Germany, 4 gradually draws viewers into the interpersonal interactions that have come to characterise the musicians and their music. Delving into relationships, and the antagonism between ambition and reality, this documentary shows how creation, destruction, antagonism and friendship all have their vital roles in the work of Quatuor Ebène.
