On the occasion of its 40th anniversary (1974-2014), the Arditti Quartet, one of the most famous groups in contemporary music, has chosen to record, for the second time and this is an occurrence sufficiently rare that it bears emphasizing , the complete string quartets of Brian Ferneyhough. The pieces on these discs immediately weave an auditory spell and well illustrate this composer's brand of complexity, i.e., writing reputed to be unplayable for the instrumentalists but providing a definite pleasure for the listener, caught up in the headiness of a universe without limits or vanishing point. This 3-CD set will not only be one of the indispensable releases of 2014 but also the best way to apprehend the music of a fundamental composer whose intense writing, emancipated heir of Schoenberg, remains radically expressive, chaotic in appearance but sublimated here by the freedom and excellence of the interpretation.

Over the past four decades, the Arditti Quartet have collaborated with almost all the great composers of our time, many of whom, from Elliott Carter to Karlheinz Stockhausen, Giacinto Scelsi to Harrison Birtwistle, have written pieces specifically for the group. But none of the Ardittis' associations have been as long-lasting and productive as that with Brian Ferneyhough. Since they gave the first performance of his Second String Quartet in 1980, Ferneyhough has composed another four full-scale quartets (one of them, the Fourth, involving a soprano setting of a deconstructed Ezra Pound poem) and three smaller works, all for them. Alongside Carter's five quartets, these works are arguably the most important contributions to the quartet repertoire since Bartók, and a complete recording of them is the best possible way for the Arditti to mark their 40th anniversary this year.

There are times, in fact, when the Ardittis' whole style of playing contemporary music seems to have been conditioned by their approach to Ferneyhough's bewilderingly intricate writing, and the negotiations it demands between what the composer specifies with his minutely precise scores and what is humanly possible. The performances on these three discs are wonderfully authoritative. They also include Ferneyhough's first exploration of the quartet medium in the huge Sonatas for String Quartet of 1967, as well as Dum Transisset I-IV, one part of a much larger set of chamber pieces based on music for viol consort by the Tudor composer Christopher Tye, and Exordium, written for Carter's 100th birthday in 2008.

What they never forget, either, is that beneath all the complexity there is a layer of intense expressiveness that drives Ferneyhough's music. It sometimes seems as if its convulsive surfaces are evidence of the seismic clash between intellectual rigour and the emotional directness beneath, which occasionally erupts in gestures of almost romantic expansiveness. Every one of these works repays repeated listening; it's not always easy going, but it's certainly never dull.

Review by Andrew Clements, The Guardian

If any chamber group has the technical wherewithal to perform Brian Ferneyhough's complete works for string quartet and string trio, the Arditti Quartet surely takes pride of place. This three-CD package from Æon is a bracing survey of Ferneyhough's profoundly complex and challenging works, covering the Sonatas for string quartet (1967); the String Quartets Nos. 2-6 (1980-2010), with soprano Claron McFadden singing in the String Quartet No. 4; the Streichtrio (1994) and the String Trio (1995); Adagissimo (1983); Dum transisset I-IV (2006); and Exordium (2008). Ferneyhough is a proponent of the New Complexity, and uses ideas and strategies developed by the avant-garde in the late 20th century, including intuitive procedures that employ the total chromatic without strict observance of rows or other series. The music is uncompromisingly intense, angular, and fragmented in the extreme, and its myriad difficulties aren't disguised or softened. The Arditti Quartet specializes in such cutting-edge music, and they are at their best in works that stretch the boundaries of expression and technique. This set is recommended for adventurous listeners and serious students of Ferneyhough's work.

Review by Blair Sanderson, Allmusic.com


This is a splendid collection of the dozen or so most important works for chamber strings by British composer, Brian Ferneyhough, who was born in 1943. Belgian label outhere's æon is to be congratulated for conceiving this project, and seeing it through so well. It's a co-production with Südwestrundfunk (the German radio network based in Cologne) and æon; the performances come from a variety of sources, recordings and venues dating from between 2006 and 2012. The composition dates of the music range evenly between 1967 (the Sonatas) and 2010 (the Sixth Quartet), although the composer completed or published no such works in the 1970s.

The music here is sequenced on the three CDs in strictly chronological order. This has the advantage, of course, of exposing how Ferneyhough's thought and achievement in the medium (string quartet, string trio) have matured. It also shows the variety of his inventiveness. It's hard to miss a consistency, a conscious development, almost, in the composer's engagement with the medium. As if he has been telling a story; revisiting an idea; developing, refining and elaborating a theme.

It's harder, though, to discern how different this major area of Ferneyhough's music would have been had it not been either written specifically for (members of) the Arditti Quartet – probably the world's leading performers of the contemporary string quartet (and trio etc), or written with them in mind. And this is one of the great strengths of this set where the Ardittis perform everything. Not only are the musicians totally at home in the works, able to respond with a gentle force to that progression of ideas, sounds and musical outcomes, are happy to bring just what is needed to the medium. But they never allow themselves to suggest in any way that their interpretations are in special, privileged, exclusive.

Rather, the playing is focused, tight, adept at navigating the many worlds that Ferneyhough's sometimes sinewy and taut composition excels in building. It's all music that celebrates strings; from evocative unison arco writing graceful and almost "domestic" to aggressive and disconcerting pizzicato – sometimes in proximity, as in the Sonatas' "Rho" and "Sigma" [CD.1 tr.s 17,18], for instance, and the spellbinding Exordium [CD.3 tr.6].

In his accompanying note, Irvine Arditti comments that no single project in the Ardittis' 40 year history has been so large as this. You certainly get the feeling that they've thrown themselves into it with alacrity and affection. You're also aware that the players feel no mandate to treat Ferneyhough's eleven completed pieces (this set includes Adagissimo [CD.1. tr.26], Dum transisset I-IV [CD.3 tr.s 2-4], and Exordium [CD.3 tr.6] as well as the two named Trios and six Quartets) as examples of the genre. Rather, they're exciting and progressive works in their own rights. Particularly pleasing with such a span of music for largely the same combination of sound possibilities is the way that the players capture Ferneyhough's excitement; they make you wonder what's coming next; how Ferneyhough plans to build what he does.

To help achieve this command over the music the Ardittis' playing directs much attention to the individual aspects of the compositions… pauses, attack, sound production (such as glissandi, portamento and – above all, it seems at times – staccato). Few listeners would probably describe Ferneyhough's string quartet and trio writing as lyrically passive and dreamy. But the Ardittis' experience is such that they pull the greatest expression and consistency out of the composer's intense and apparently fragmented style. To listen, for instance, to the two-movement Third String Quartet [CD.2 tr.s 1,2] or the cast iron logic of the Fourth [CD.2 tr.s 3-6] is to hear compositions built meticulously from bar to bar (there are huge variations in both texture and tempo, for example).

But they are compositions whose overall conceptions arise from vision and insight; never shock and effect – however dislocated some of the phrasing of Ferneyhough's work may sound on casual (or) first hearing. Another achievement of the Ardittis here is to expose the maturation process of Ferneyhough's work in the genre over 40+ years without even slightly implicitly underplaying value of the earlier works, especially given what seems like their ever-increasing energy. This may even be because, by the time you've followed Ferneyhough's journey in the medium a couple of times, you're aware of his growing maturation, which puts a certain distance between him and a somewhat complex impetus. A relaxation, almost. That the Ardittis have nevertheless given each work its due for its own sake and on its own terms is to their credit.

Ferneyhough has always been concerned with the (human) voice. American soprano Claron McFadden performs with vigor and enthusiasm in the Fourth String Quartet [CD.2 tr.s 3-6]; she makes up with energy a perhaps less than idiomatic pronunciation of the non-English texts. A lot is expected of her in terms of vocal dexterity and speedy articulation: McFadden delivers here very well indeed. Importantly, this combination of players and singers underlines once more Ferneyhough's attraction, connection and even indebtedness with and to the earlier exponents in this (string) medium; and indeed the widest canon of Western music. Dum Transisset, for example, is based on material by Christopher Tye (c. 1505-1573). Again, this is a difficult blend for the Ardittis to have achieved: uncompromisingly contemporary music which makes few concessions to conventional tonality or even expected structure. Yet the listener soon knows that everything which Ferneyhough says has its origins in recognizable precedents of logic and progression.

The nett result of this tension is that the performers successfully take us well below the surface. This facility not merely to "play" the music impassively, nor to unfold it without "paying it out" like rope from a drum. That strength is particularly evident when the forces are reduced even further to the intensity of just the violin, viola and cello of the short Streichtrio from 1994; then the much longer String Trio. Indeed the latter is the longest work on the set… only the Sixth Quartet is so substantial as a single movement. Ferneyhough is conscious that this medium has origins (the trio sonata) which contrast with the more widely adopted and developed Classical sonata-allegro form.

The Ardittis are conscious of the consequent need neither to let the composer's concerns with form and structure overwhelm the works' musicality; nor let form and structure become incidental; that would thus have risked a loss of impact in what – as has been said – may seem an already fragmented sonic world. Their drive and understanding of the composer's priorities succeed admirably here too. At the same time, the transcendence and concern for the mystical is never lost as the particularities of technique and continuity of vastly varying phrases are attended to. By the time you've absorbed and become more familiar with the apparently even more ambitious Sixth Quartet, the large(r) scale on which it was conceived and written will surely strike you as an apotheosis (at least for Ferneyhough) of the amalgam of the fragment and the whole. This structural element is also admirably conveyed by the Ardittis.

The acoustics of the locations (Hans Rosbaud-Studio, Baden Baden; the Beethovenhaus in Bonn) in which these recordings were made provide resonant but not luxuriant atmospheres in which this insistent and definite music is heard at its best. The booklet in French and English has useful background on the works – by Ferneyhough himself, and by his pupil, Fabrice Fitch. Ferneyhough's Sixth Quartet is also available on Neos 1114 ("Donaueschinger Musiktage 2010"); otherwise these are the only available recordings of the works. It's hard to imagine anyone better suited to their interpretation than the Ardittis. This is a set that should be snapped up by all those interested in and/or enthusiastic about contemporary music. Ferneyhough has a rare blend of authority and invention. His music deserves a wider audience. This excellent collection should help to achieve that.
