Legendary leader of the Arditti Quartet; Irvine Arditti has worked on many solo projects and is still today one of the foremost interpreters of the music of our time.
Over the past decade he has given the world premieres of a whole host of large-scale works written especially for him.
His approach to the contemporary violin is fascinating. The works by Salvatore Sciarrino, Elliott Carter, Emmanuel Nunes and Pierre Boulez assembled in this album are among the most widely known in the recent repertory for violin.
Irvine Arditti’s performance of them on this disc is masterly and already sets a benchmark.
