String Quartet No. 3, 'Black Church'
Events for this work
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.
The Ligeti Quartet's second concert as Quartet in Residence at the University of Sheffield.
Includes the world première performances of Anna Meredith's Music for Ravens and Tom Green's Gravity Fragments. Followed by a DJ set from Richard Greenan (KIT Records).
