New Dots - world premieres and more with Ligeti Quartet

Enlightenment - Hoxton
The Ligeti Quartet (last heard in Steve Reich's Three Tales) is performing a programme entitled Enlightenment at Hoxton Basement, 18 Hoxton Street, London N1 6NG on Sunday 31 May 2015. Organised by New Dots, the organisation which aims to provide opportunities for emerging composers and musicians, the concert has George's Crumb's classic Black Angels at its centre, along with premieres of music by Anna Meredith, and Tom Green, plus works by Wadada Leo Smith, William Dougherty, and Ji Sun Yang. Tom Green's new work Gravity Fragments is in fact designed as a response to Black Angels which Crumb wrote during the Vietnam War and which uses electric string instruments as well as using extended techniques, requiring the players to speak and to play a set of percussion instruments as well.

You can read more about the concert at the New Dots website.
