In the first of a new series, Solem Lates, the Solem Quartet presents ‘batózeyal’: a night of music for string quartet and electronics.
Excitingly, batózeyal will feature two specially commissioned premieres, from Larry Goves and Aaron Parker, alongside Anna Meredith’s Tuggemo and other exhilarating recent works from Jonathan Dove and Paul Zaba. In the context of this contemporary music, the group will also be performing Bartók’s 3rd Quartet which sounds as fresh and visceral as it did at its conception, almost 100 years ago.
This event takes place on 2nd May at the CLF Art Cafe, Bussey Building, Peckham – so do come and have a drink and immerse yourself in some incredible new music!
The title of the night ‘batózeyal’ is taken from a work by Aaron Parker – some movements of which we’ll be playing on May 2nd. His work responds to and interacts with the Bartók Quartet and the quartet hopes that throughout the evening, the listener will be able to draw their own connections with music from the past and also from contemporary culture.
