One of the UK’s leading contemporary string quartets, The Ligeti Quartet will premiere Stef’s new piece Singing Strings – A Contemporary Quartet in Conversation on Wednesday 26th October at West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge. The innovative programme Remembering the Future explores connections between music for strings, past, present and future and also includes works by Stravinsky, Bach, Webern, Gubaidulina and Haas. Stef’s Singing Strings is part contemporary string quartet, part theatre piece, part essay about the contemporary string quartet, part stream of consciousness rant and part children’s entertainment… if for no other reason, come along and enjoy the novelty of some of the finest contemporary classical performers on the scene shouting “PLINKY PLONK MUSIC!!” at each other during their performance!
Following the premiere, the quartet will perform the piece in London, Bristol and Dorchester. Full details of the tour are available on the Ligeti Quartet website.
