Tradition and the contemporary string quartet

Taking the title from a series of lectures by Luciano Berio, our Associate Artists, Ligeti Quartet, question how much the past bears an influence on the present. Homages to the music of Bach, a nod to neoclassicism, and historicising sound elements with microtonal adjustments feature alongside the world premiere of George Nicholson’s Fifth String Quartet.
