Featured works: John Cage: "Thirty Pieces for String Quartet" (1983); Jakob Ullmann: "Komposition fur Streichquartett 2" (1998/99). Performed by Arditti Quartet: Irvine Arditti & Graeme Jennings, violins; Dov Scheindlin, viola; Rohan de Saram, cello. Recorded in 2001. "John Cage once said, 'There's no string quartet that can match the Ardittis!' And that praise is confirmed by the many awards the Arditti Quartet regularly receives. For many years, the exceptional ensemble led by First Violinist Irvine Arditti applies endless energy and absolute musical perfection to enriching the string quartet repertoire. This CD presents two quiet quartet pieces by the great American innovator John Cage and the radical German music thinker Jakob Ullmann, thereby highlighting their intellectual kinship."
