Programme to include:
Renowned for their innovative programming and championing of today’s most exciting composers, the Ligeti Quartet has been at the forefront of new music since their formation in 2010.
The Quartet returns to York to present a ground-breaking new project with University of York alumna Anna Meredith. Their album, Nuc, consists entirely of compositions from Meredith’s glittering career and includes pieces re-arranged by the Quartet.
Named after the beekeeping term for a small nuclear colony of thronging, anxious activity, Nuc marks the thrilling alignment of the two camps’ aesthetics, with the durability and formal playfulness of Meredith’s compositions enhanced by the transgressive, unorthodox touch of the Quartet’s interpretations.
Join us for a memorable performance!
