The Arditti Quartet at 40
Ivan Hewett presents the first of two programmes in which the Arditti Quartet are heard playing some of the hundreds of works written especially for them over the past forty years. The music was recorded earlier this year during a remarkable three concert marathon at the Barbican's Milton Court which also featured works by composers such as Elliott Carter with whom the Arditti Quartet has been closely associated.
