Ligeti Quartet Planetary Tour feat. Crane & Bullen

Written out of a fascination with astrology, Holst’s The Planets was first performed 100 years ago. But what would it sound like if created today?

Inspired by modern astronomy and music, the adventurous Ligeti Quartet perform 8 new planetary works, created especially for planetariums, by 8 composers including Composers Edition’s Laurence Crane and Richard Bullen and feature live visuals by Sam Bordoli’s Live Music Sculpture.

For his work Bullen has been working with scientist astronomer Dr Leigh Fletch from De Montford University Leicester to explore the science of Jupiter.  Crane’s work is titled Neptune.

The Planets 2018 is produced by Sound UK. Funded by Arts Council England National Lottery and RVW Trust.

Tour Dates:
