This short concert is part of a two-day celebration of the legacy, musicological and performance interests of the late Professor Alexander Ivashkin. The Ligeti Quartet is joined by guest violist Diana Mathews.
The Ligeti Quartet will be in residence for the Cheltenham Composer Academy (9-16 July 2017), alongside percussionist Joby Burgess and director Michael Zev Gordon.
In this showcase, we will premiere six new works by student composers, workshopped during the Academy.
This concert launches two major guitar albums: Cançons i danses by the Eden Stell Guitar Duo featuring the first guitar CD entirely devoted to the music of the Catalan composer Federico Mompou, and Ignite by Tom Kerstens’ G Plus Ensemble which offers an all new music programme including work by Max Richter, Gabriel Jackson and John Metcalfe.
