This year’s Quartet Week features six acclaimed ensembles who will explore a wide-ranging selection of works from the rich quartet repertoire in the Pierre Boulez Saal’s intimate setting. With celebrated masterpieces of the genre performed side by side with contemporary and recent pieces, the program reveals surprising connections and echoes across different styles and eras.

Over the course of almost half a century, the Arditti Quartet has helped expand the string quartet repertoire in unprecedented ways. Always in close collaboration with the leading composers of the day, the four musicians also keep adding new voices to the mix: together with countertenor Jake Arditti, they present recent works by Hilda Paredes and Salvatore Sciarrino as well as string quartets by James Dillon and Hans Werner Henze.
