This programme explores music by living American composers. Beginning with a
ten-thousand-year-old affirmation of spiritual balance, the plea for peace and justice is heard
through different musical expressions. It also showcases the emerging composer Sarah Rimkus in a
new work written for the Ligeti Quartet. Based on “the voice”, her piece reminds us how the string
quartet presents a unified argument, the shared consciousness of four human beings.Sunday February 24th, 2019 7:30pm at the Warehouse, London
