Event Details

As a celebration of their 40th anniversary, the Arditti Quartet present a concert featuring works written especially for them from their vast repertoire, ranging from older pieces selected from the hcmf// archive - including Benedict Mason's second string quartet, first performed at hcmf// in 1993 - right through to the most recent works, including the UK premiere of a new work by Liza Lim, written for the Quartet's birthday concert in Witten earlier this year.

This is also a rare opportunity to hear Philippe Manoury's Quartet 0, a very early string quartet from 1977, performed only a couple of times and recorded by the Arditti Quartet before being withdrawn by the composer. Philippe Manoury has given exclusive permission for it to be performed at hcmf// as a birthday gift to the Quartet.
