New Horizons


The world was rapidly changing at the turn of the twentieth century: social changes, globalization, second industrial revolution, major developments in science, new movements in art… Technology and global communication made the world smaller and connected people from different cultures.

This period was widely thought to be a period of degeneration, but at the same time a period of hope for a new beginning.

In this program the Ardemus Quartet performs pieces by composers that lived in this exciting time and revolutionized the world with their music.
