To kick off their 10th anniversary year, Ligeti Quartet take a snapshot tour of music by some of the most exciting and genre-defying composers working today in the UK and around the world.
A performance including four world premieres, with works by Cheltenham Composer Academy Director Michael Zev Gordon, 2017 Academy alumni Sarah Rimkus and cellist Ayanna Witter-Johnson (commissioned by Cheltenham Music Festival), and one by 2017 RPS Composition Prize winner Bethan Morgan Williams (supported by the Susan Bradshaw Composers’ Fund). The programme is completed by a new work by young composer Christian Mason, commissioned by the Ligeti Quartet (supported by the Britten Pears Foundation and the City Music Foundation).
