Luminescent fragility

A scarce solo recital from the cellist of the Arditti Quartet brings to Sheffield the UK premieres of Brian Ferneyhough’s In Nomine, Mark Andre’s iv2 and Enno Poppe’s Zwölf.  Elements with radioactive properties and strong luminescent qualities known as lanthanides or ’rare earths’ inspire composer Dorothy Ker’s new work for cello.



Discover the most unique and innovative music around and join our experiments in the Sound Laboratory week-long take over...
