Events for this work
Ligeti Quartet perform a programme for International Women’s Day, featuring three pieces composed for them: Singing Strings (commissioned with the support of the RVW Trust), Mento Mood (commissioned by Cheltenham Festival) and Venus (commissioned by Sound UK).
This is a University of Sheffield Concerts Performance.
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.
