Mandhira, Patrick, Richard and Val founded the Ligeti Quartet in 2010 and have since then established a repertoire that features today's most exciting and fascinating composers. The quartet's innovative approach to string music has brought them to venues such as Carnegie Hall, Curtis Institute, Wigmore Hall and Barbican Hall in the past, which doesn't keep them from performing in unusual paces such as a fishing boat or on iceberg sculptures as part of Greenpeace campaign.

Canadian composer and pianist John Farah manages to combine baroque and early music with experimental, middle-eastern and electronic music in his compositions. At his solo concerts, he impresses his audiences with a setup of synthesizers that surround his piano, processing the sounds through computer filters and effects.
