NJTV News: The #quartweet project launch at the IAS

NJTV News reporting on the #quartweet project launch with the Princeton Symphony Orchestra at the IAS on October 4th, 2015:

#Quartweeting Composers Make Music in 140 Notes or Less

The #quartweet project

Music is all about communicating. Much of our everyday communication takes place on social media, and we would like to see musical communication here as well. We invite composers of all ages and abilities to tweet us a short quartet of 140 notes or less on Twitter—a #quartweet!

For more information, see here.

New release: soundescapes

“I am most excited by this new recording by the Signum Quartet of my first quartet Arcadiana. It is a thrill to have this magnificent recording, and to find my piece in the perfect context of the two great masterpieces by Debussy and Ravel. It is an honour for a composer of my generation to be presented in such company. Bravo and many thanks to the Signum Quartet!”Thomas Adès

New premiere

We’re thrilled to announce that we will be premiering Bruno Mantovani’s Third String Quartet in January 2016 at the 7ème Biennale de Quatuors à cordes in Paris!

soundescapes: “An exhilarating cocktail.”
“How wonderful it is when interpreters bring these ideas to life with such verve and intuition. […] An enthusiasm for playing which will perk up even hardened chamber music-grouches.”—Spiegel Online

Jörg Widmann and friends at the Prinzregententheater
The acoustic signals of the violent string cascades chased the wild shouting of the players until the bow hairs of the instruments of the splendid Signum ensemble were flying and the exhausted and fatally wounded cellist was hunted down.”—Süddeutsche Zeitung
