String Quartet No. 2
Events for this work
We are delighted that students from the Glenn Gould School will join us to perform Ligeti's Ramifications and Poeme Symphonique in our debut Toronto concert!
Join the Ligeti Quartet and friends for an enticing programme of György Ligeti's music, including the incredible Poème Symphonique for 100 metronomes.
An exploration of Ligeti’s unique take on the fundamental elements of music from the playful Poème Symphonique for 100 metronomes to Bartók-inspired Quartet No.1, modernist Quartet No.2, and the uncertain harmonies and tangled textures of Ramifications.
In their first concert since March, the Ligeti Quartet perform modern classics for string quartet, including Axel Borup-Jørgensen's Microorganisms miniatures.
Their trip has been generously supported by Snyk, the Danish organization supporting new and experimental music and sound art.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this concert has been cancelled or postponed.
The Ligeti Quartet's fourth concert as Quartet in Residence at the University of Sheffield.
Concert as part of the Park Lane Group Young Artists New Year Series, including works for string quartet performed by the Ligeti Quartet, and works for guitar performed by Paul Norman.
