The 2022 edition of the String Quartet Biennial organized by the Philharmonie de Paris celebrates Philippe Manoury's 70th birthday with, rather than a cake with candles, a complete performance of his four quartets. The second one, entitled Tensio, is of course performed by the Diotima Quartet, which brought it to the IRCAM's baptismal font in 2010. Pushing the interaction between the musicians and the machine to previously unattainable extremes, Tensio uses physical model synthesis, interactive synthesis of inharmonic sounds, harmonic sound spinners and tempo tracking of the instruments, making the electronics a "fifth voice" in the quartet.

The Diotima will add two pieces to their long list of premieres, including the first real string quartet by the Swiss-Austrian composer Beat Furrer and a score by the Cologne-based Chinese composer Ying Wang.
