Events for this work
Centred around music by Christian Mason and Tanya Tagaq from their recently released album Songbooks Vol. 1, Ligeti Quartet explores the sonic possibilities of string techniques inspired by throat singing traditions from around the world. York composers, past and present, make up the rest of the programme, taking inspiration from howling dogs, and the entire history of the string quartet itself.
This is an online concert from the Jack Lyons Concert Hall, University of York.
Simmy Singh – guest violin 1
Patrick Dawkins – violin 2
Richard Jones – viola
Val Welbanks – cello
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.
This is the second of two CeNMaS workshops with 8 selected composers (Robin Haigh, Sarah Lewis, Ben Lunn, Alex Mills, Helen Papaioannou, Lisa Robertson, Laura Shipsey, Peter Wilson), who have each created a 6-minute piece for string quartet.
