Read more about the North American Debut Tour

Formed in 2018, Dream House Quartet fuses decades of musical mastery of classical and contemporary forms. Legendary dueling pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque alongside pioneering composer-guitarists Bryce Dessner (The National, C’mon C’mon, Bardo), and David Chalmin (Innocence, La Terre Invisible) perform unparalleled works by visionary composers from the past half-century.

A daring triumph.


The quartet’s premiere US tour brings newly commissioned works from Thom Yorke’s (Radiohead) first compositions for classical music and concert halls for two pianos, electronics and modular synthesizer, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Bryce Dessner, David Chalmin, and more.

Whether Mozart or Stravinsky, their musical line always sounds as if its being woven for the very first time… But the illusion of improvisation is the genius of their performances. In all their recordings there is a deceptive sprezzatura that is born of throwing the preparation to the winds and hanging onto each each others ears.
