Alongside the five contrasting movements of Ligeti’s Second Quartet (1968) are Thomas Adès’ Piano Quintet (2000), and the second (2007) of a series of works called Cineshape by the American composer Amy Williams, each inspired by a different film – in this instance Mike Figgis’ Time Code. The 14th-century French composer Rodericus is known for just the one ballade – a work of unusual rhythmical complexity which Ligeti might have appreciated; it is heard in an arrangement by a member of the quartet.
