Fragmente Stille, an Diotima

Bringing together some of contemporary music's most respected ensembles with the UK's most exciting young talent - including St John's Smith Square Young Artists George Barton and Siwan Rhys - the festival offers the opportunity to be immersed in the contemplative works of these two giants of post-war music, both of whom opened up new worlds of sonic exploration, focussing on the minutiae of individual voices, textures and sounds.

Making a rare London appearance, the Montreal-based Bozzini Quartet perform Nono's masterful response to the poetry Holderlin alongside a quartet by Claudia Molitor inspired by lines from Rilke.

The programme is completed by a set of enigmatic canons by Nono's compatriot and near-contemporary Aldo Clementi, and the clear, airy harmonies of John Lely's Doubles.
