Two of Xenakis’s finest chamber works crown this thrilling programme. The short and concise Akea is followed by Tetras, named after the ancient Greek word ‘four’. With its extreme technical challenges and bold originality, Tetras was hailed as a pioneering addition to the string quartet repertoire following its première in 1983.

The JACK Quartet appears with the friendly support of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation
