The Ligeti Quartet & Anna Meredith | Qobuz Interview


Anna Meredith is an artist/composer that defies categorisation. She plays with her band, has been nominated for a Mercury Prize, was a composer in residence for the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and has written for TV and film, among many other things... not to mention she now has the title of MBE. Therefore it was only natural that she team up with the Ligeti Quartet to release their second album, Nuc. The Ligeti Quartet have been championing new and contemporary classical music in the UK for a long time, which explains their extensive history with Meredith. We sat down with Richard Jones, violist and arranger, and Anna Meredith, to discuss their history, collaboration during the album, and how we make contemporary classical more digestible for listeners.
