November is going to be filled with important keywords. If we should add a single one, we would go for #quartertones.

Microtonal music (music using quartertones) is such which uses smaller intervals than the commonly used half tones – there will be plenty of them the during the Quartertones concert of Cluster ensemble. Fero Király and Ivan Šiller are inviting you to the Concert Hall Dvorana (Zochova Street, Bratislava) on November 15th. Other important names of this concert are Charles Ives and Ivan Vyshnegradskij, you can also hear music by female composer Želislava Sojak Subotić. Cluster ensemble writes about Quartertones here, we recommend this as a form of intriguing concert preparation.
