Notes & Reviews:

This is the first appearance on NMC by the world-renowned Arditti Quartet who are among the most influential exponents of contemporary classical music. The Arditti Quartet has worked closely with James Dillon for years and premiered many of his works. The 'soadie waste', subtitled "wedding receptions, dances and housie housie" is inspired by an old dance hall in Rutherglen, near where James Dillon grew up on the outskirts of Glasgow. Dillon explains that "'The soadie waste' was the local name for the social club which was built on the wasteland of an old chemical factory, and it was said that residual fumes from below would seep through the floorboards during a hot dance session". This is exuberantly physical music, evoking rowdy celebrations rather than a chemically traumatized populace.
