Approximate running time: 1h 45m with one intermission

As artist in focus of the Pierre Boulez Saal, Jörg Widmann is equally represented in this season’s program as a composer and performer. The adventurous British Heath Quartet, sought-after interpreters of contemporary music, now take on Widmann’s complete string quartets. For the fifth quartet, entitled “Experiment on a Fugue,” the musicians are joined by soprano Carolyn Sampson.
