Press Quotes

"Birtwistle's The Tree of Strings – an evocation of what might have survived of a lost musical culture on the Hebridean island of Raasay – is starting to emerge as one of his finest recent achievements. It seems to reveal more mysteries and beauties with every performance, and the Ardittis play it wonderfully."
The Guardian

Recommended Recording

"It's one of the most powerful of his recent works, alternating moments of total stillness with passages of great athleticism and rhythmic energy, or long, continuously evolving melodic lines."
The Guardian

Arditti String Quartet
Aeon, AECD 1217
