Arditti performs Zorn, Haas, Schnittke and Tenney

a prophet among musicians” – Harrison Birtwistle on Irvine Arditti

The string quartet is often the crucible in which composers define their voices. Join the Arditti Quartet as they explore modern masterworks of four unique voices. Composer and MacArthur Fellow John Zorn is a true American iconoclast and a music scene unto himself. Alfred Schnittke leapt onto the international stage in the 80’s as a leading voice of the new Russian school. Haas is a crafter of microtonal jewels. And James Tenney, who subsumed all manners of style into his own musical language, left his final work in the form of a string quartet.
