‘Gifts and Greetings’, the Arditti String Quartet’s 40th Anniversary

On Saturday 10th May, the premiere of The Weaver’s Knot, a new string quartet of mine commissioned for the concert ‘Gifts and Greetings: Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Arditti String Quartet’ takes place at Wittenertage für neue Kammermusik. As well as my work, the programme see the premieres of quartets by Mark Andre, Hans Abrahamsen, Harrison Birtwistle, Uri Caine, Brian Ferneyhough, Georg Friedrich Haas, Toshio Hosokawa, György Kurtág, Hilda Paredes, Brice Pauset, Wolfgang Rihm, Marco Stroppa and Jennifer Walshe. I think it’ll be a party to remember…
WDR 3 will broadcast the concert on 10 May at 22:00 (CET).
