The Arditti Quartet is perhaps the most famous string quartet of recent decades. Always looking for new challenges, the company is considered one of the most important advocates of contemporary classical music, not infrequently in its most radical form. Musical luminaries like John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Wolfgang Rihm and György Ligeti dedicated all their compositions to them, and even consulted the foursome to fine-tune their writing.

On 2 October 2022, the ensemble played to a full MIRY Concert Hall. The next day, they gave a master class to composition students.
