We're pleased to be ending the Summer round of gigs with two of the most active and prolific ensembles on London's contemporary classical scene.
The LIGETI QUARTET were formed in 2010 to perform the music of Gyorgy Ligeti and within only 3 years have become one of the most important contemporary quartets in the country. Among many achievements they've performed over 20 world premières, trained with the Kronos Quartet and been selected as Park Lane Group Young Artists 2012-13. They're currently working on an album of new commissions for string quartet and trumpet.
Their programme for the 3rd is:
Christian Mason - Sai Ma John Adams - Fellow Traveller Anna Meredith - Songs for the M8 Arvo Pärt - Fratres Béla Bartók - Quartet No. 4 (finale)
RARESCALE is a flexible-instrumentation contemporary chamber music ensemble, which since its formation by Carla Rees in 2003 has gained an international reputation for its work promoting and creating new repertoire for alto and bass flute. Carla is the UK's leading contemporary exponent of cutting-edge flute music; she'll make you throw away your preconceptions of what a flute can do, blending electronics and more to redefine the flute, with composer Michael Oliva handling electronics.
