The venerable Arditti Quartet graced last year’s festival with a series of UK premieres; this year, they debut works from established hcmf// collaborator and 2014 Composer in Residence James Dillon, performing two new compositions for string quartet. Accompanying these pieces are a UK premiere of Clara Ianotta’s Dead Wasps In a Jam-Jar III – a composition concerned with movement, pressure and perpetual states – and Salvatore Sciarrino’s Cosa Resta, with countertenor written for and performed by Jake Arditti.
