Soundings @ Austrian Cultural Forum – October
I am to be a featured composer at the Soundings 2014 programme of events this October, at London’s Austrian Cultural Forum. Curated by the Fidelio Trio‘s Mary Dullea, Soundings is a platform for contemporary music that brings together composers from the UK and Austria for four days of roundtable talks, workshops and concerts.
- On Thursday 30th October (7pm), my Enmîmés sont les gougebosqueux will be performed by Mary Dullea, Rose Redgrave, Rowland Sutherland & Alice Purton at the Austrian Cultural Forum.
- On Friday 31st October (7.30pm) at the Royal College of Music, I will conduct violinist Darragh Morgan and students from the RCM in Sparking and Slipping.
This will be the second performance of Sparking and Slipping, after Sarah Hill performed it with an ensemble on the 11th September. Both concerts will also feature music by the other composers featured at Soundings – Julia Purgina, Arturo Fuentes and Simon Vosecek (from Austria) and Joanna Lee, Ruaidhri Mannion and myself (from the UK). There will also be various discussions, talks and open rehearsals that are happening – check here for details.
In other news, Trio Atem are performing some of my Seven Face Pictures at Manchester’s St Ann’s Church on the 14th October, in a concert also featuring works by Camden Reeves, Kaija Saariaho, Larry Goves and György Kurtág. Details here.
