We’re delighted that Ligeti Quartet joined us as partners in signing up to our Fair Access Principles in October 2020.

Developed through consultation with a broad range of composers and organisations, Sound and Music’s Fair Access Principles are designed to act as a code of best practice for running successful, open and inclusive artist development programmes, competitions and awards for composers.

In signing up, Ligeti Quartet are committing to enact the Fair Access Principles across their work over the next two years. We recognise that organisations will need time to think about and implement changes within their programmes.

You can read their reasons for signing up and future commitments the organisation have made below.

Ligeti Quartet’s Statement

“We have benefited from many publicly offered schemes and residencies in the past – these are sometimes the only way to gain education, experience and exposure in the world of music.

We believe the Fair Access Principles are really important for helping ensure that everyone has a fair chance at these opportunities. We wholeheartedly commit to the principles for schemes that we provide.”

– Valerie Welbanks, Cellist for the Ligeti Quartet
