Françoise Choveaux takes up with a musical tradition anchored since the 19th Century. She is a composer but also a pianist.

Numerous live recordings and in studio were realized, among which the integral works of her quartets recorded by the famous Vilnius Strings Quartet. » The wealth of sounds and colors for strings is a discovery of every moment. For a composer, I think that the string quartet offers possibilities to the infinity similar to the use a painter can make of its palette. It is one of the forms of writing that I prefer. « , she explains in the notebook of the CD.
Each of her partitions is inspired, either by journeys, or by internal feelings, or connected directly with a literary or pictorial work. » Her musical universe is strong and colored » wrote Marc Vignal, musicologist and critic) in Le monde de la Musique.
