The Ardittis return to Huddersfield with a programme of very recent quartets all written for them.
Manoury's highly anticipated new string quartet is his first since 1977; in contrast Ferneyhough's sixth quartet work presents ever more complex challenges for his performers to untangle. Billone's debut in the format explores the textures of the instruments' lower registers, whilst Olga Neuwirth offers up a surprising change of style with her first quartet for 10 years.
