The Contemporary Music Research Unit and PureGold present the final concert in the term-long Treatise Project, performed by the Ligeti Quartet.
Pianist, composer and improviser Xenia Pestova Bennett will curate a special afternoon featuring the Magnetic Resonator Piano, an exciting new instrument designed by the radical inventor Andrew McPherson. A grand piano will be completely transformed into a stunning acoustic cyborg with electromagnets suspended above the strings, allowing for control of minute details of shimmering resonance and gorgeous sustained tones.
A lunchtime concert in the presence of Raymond Warren followed by a drinks reception.
Warren: String Quartet No.2
