Four into infinity
At the 2013 edition of our partner festival WIEN MODERN the Arditti Quartet performed two concert evenings, and from the live recordings we have selected four pieces. Each of the compositions by Rebecca Saunders, Benedict Mason, Luke Bedford and John Zorn is a little masterpiece in its own right.
Instrumentation
Arditti Quartet:
Irvine Arditti, violin
Ashot Sarkissjan, violin
Ralf Ehlers, viola
Lucas Fels, violoncello

Sarah Maria Sun, soprano (on John Zorn: Pandora’s Box)

The Arditti Quartet has not only helped to shape our perception of contemporary music over the past forty years but, thanks to their accumulated experience, these four musicians also exemplify the future of this fascinating musical universe.

Sarah Maria Sun is part of the wonderful Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart.

Recommendation
Puslinger, Fennesz, Cage - a Dreamteam! 
Part two of col legno’s WIEN MODERN Edition is dedicated to Luciano Berio: Chemins I and IIb, Concerto and Formazioni, recorded live at WIEN MODERN Festival 2007. 
Patrick Pulsinger assembles a quartet to embark on a musical reflection on Morton Feldman at the WIEN MODERN festival. A perfect col legno production!
