Apartment House: Xenakis and Karkowski




Apartment House presents two string quartets by Iannis Xenakis: the mercurial and unpredictable ST/4-1,080262 and the monumental and austere Tetora. Growing out of Xenakis' study of mathematics and architecture, these works have an elemental quality, like folk-music from another planet.

Also, a rare chance to hear the highly charged music of Zbigniew Karkowski.

For twenty years, Apartment House has been at the forefront of experimental music, having commissioned over one hundred new works and staged performances from Oslo to Rome and from Barcelona to Vilnius. Founded by the cellist and artist Anton Lukoszevieze, Apartment House is the most frequently featured UK ensemble in the history of the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and its John Cage portrait concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall won the group a Royal Philharmonic Society Award for outstanding contribution to Chamber Music and Song.
