Arditti Quartet

Saturday 16 August 2014

Jake Arditti Countertenor

Music by Dowland, Gesualdo, Brian Ferneyhough and Hilda Paredes

Contemporary music specialists the Arditti Quartet has made numerous acclaimed Festival appearances in recent years, and the players return with music both radiantly ancient and bracingly modern. Countertenor Jake Arditti sings moving Renaissance masterpieces by Dowland and Gesualdo in new arrangements for quartet by Mexican composer Hilda Paredes. They are followed by the exquisite beauty of Brian Ferneyhough's Dum transisset I-IV, modelled on viol music by Christopher Tye, and by Paredes's own atmospheric Canciones lunáticas for countertenor and quartet.
