Events for this work
The Music of Change
In this programme, the Ligeti Quartet explores change through music - personal change, societal change, and environmental change. This concert marks the inauguration of Homerton College's Foundation Concert series.
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.

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).
