Demonstrating their ongoing enthusiasm for performing new commissions, Quatuor Diotima present a trio of fresh pieces. Dillon's association with hcmf// stretches right back to the first festival in 1978, whilst Diotima brought Thomas Simaku's Radius - String Quartet No 2 to hcmf// two years ago. Oscar Bianchi, meanwhile, is a former Gaudeamus prize winner whose densely textured music is rich with dramatic tension.

Produced by hcmf//

Adesso was commissioned by hcmf// Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, Deutschlandradio Kultur and Archipel Festival des Musiques d'aujourd'hui, Geneva.
