There’s nothing more exciting than a new piece, and no experience quite like playing a new work by Michael Finnissy. He has been, and continues to be, so important to me, and the other members of the Kreutzer Quartet. Here is the premiere of the complete ‘Civilisation’, at Wilton’s Music Hall, the 6th premiere in this year’s ‘Beethoven Begins’ series.
