'There were terrifying things in the air…they found their way into Black Angels'. George Crumb

The Ligeti Quartet presents a gripping picture of modern classical music at The Leadmill. Two 20th century classics - Steve Reich’s Grammy award-winning Different Trains and George Crumb’s iconic Black Angels for electric string quartet - feature alongside the rock-riff influenced minimalism of John Adams; John Zorn’s explosive collage of jazz, American folk, punk, modernist and classical music; and Tanya Tagaq’s Sivunittinni - inspired by Inuit throat singing.

As with all our concerts in the Studio, the event is fully seated, but seats are unreserved.

Running time: About 1 hour and 40 minutes (including a 15 minute interval)
