Commissioned by the Ligeti Quartet, with the generous support of The Hinrichsen Foundation and the Centre for New Music at Sheffield (CeNMaS).
Events for this work
The Ligeti Quartet perform two pieces written for them in 2019. Firstly a brand new commission by Robin Haigh, his String Quartet which includes a tribute to scat singer Shooby Taylor, recorders (as always), an imitation of singing Samoyed dogs, and "technical death metal through a folk fiddle idiom". And then Tom Green's Solstice Songs, a reimagining of traditional festive tunes.
