Artemis Quartet

Programme Note

The Berlin-based Artemis Quartet, founded 25 years ago at the Musikhochschule in Lübeck, stands today among the world’s leading chamber ensembles.

Its commitment to new music is boldly stated with Pēteris Vask’s Fifth String Quartet, a two-movement exploration of the conscious states of presence and distance influenced by the Latvian composer’s compassion for ‘a world tortured by grief and contradictions’.
