From hidden romantic messages, metacommunication, and onto the hauntingly beautiful howling of dogs, the Ligeti Quartet explores the infinite and multifaceted nature of communication. Works from Patricia Alessandrini and Alban Berg accompany a brand new commission by Robin Haigh and his full length quartet expanding on Samoyeds (Centre for New Music at Sheffield, 2018) which was based on a YouTube video of a pack of dogs imitating a siren.
Ella Taylor is a soprano with a passion for performing contemporary music and works by women and gender non-conforming artists. They are currently a Young Artist with the National Opera Studio, as well as a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, where they gained Distinction in MA Performance, a DipRAM for an outstanding final recital, and the Charles Norman Prize. They are grateful for the support of Help Musicians UK through their Sybil Tutton Award.
