Ardittis at the Wigmore Hall

Fierce and fun as ever, the Arditti Quartet brought a fairly uncompromising programme of new and newish works to the saturnine Wigmore Hall this week. Ferneyhough was capricious, James Clarke tenebrous, Fujikura a little inconsequential, and Paredes fervent and inventive. See the video above of the Arditti Quartet performing Ferneyhough’s sixth quartet for a flavour of the evening. (I hadn’t even bothered to check if it was available originally, but happened to notice its existence on You Tube via the wonderful Boulezian.) My full review is at Musical Criticism.
