London Festival of American Music

This programme explores music by living American composers. Beginning with a ten-thousand-year-old affirmation of spiritual balance, the plea for peace and justice is heard through different musical expressions. It also showcases the emerging composer Sarah Rimkus in a new work written for the Ligeti Quartet, inspired by the sounds of the human voice.

Music in the Round

The Ligeti Quartet present a gripping picture of modern classical music at The Leadmill. Two 20th century classics - Steve Reich’s Grammy award-winning Different Trains and George Crumb’s iconic Black Angels for electric string quartet - feature alongside the rock-riff influenced minimalism of John Adams; John Zorn’s explosive collage of jazz, American folk, punk, modernist and classical music; and Tanya Tagaq’s Sivunittinni - inspired by Inuit throat singing.
