On 12 March 2018, the Quartet will play a new commission for Actions. The image of the world can be different by Kate Whitley alongside pieces by Austro-Hungarian composer Gyorgy Ligeti, and by the American composer and saxophonist John Zorn.
The Ligeti Quartet have been at the forefront of modern and contemporary music since their formation in 2010. They have established a reputation as one of the UK’s leading ensembles, breaking new ground through innovative programming and championing of today’s most exciting composers and artists.
The Quartet are passionate about supporting emerging composers and taking new music to diverse audiences. As Ensemble in Residence at the Universities of both Sheffield and Cambridge, they regularly lead composition workshops, and undertake education and community outreach work. They took part in the Cheltenham Festival Composers Academy 2017, and are City Music Foundation Artists 2016-18.
