Other new music in Huddersfield

Yes, yes, I know the Huddersfield Festival is coming up, but if you’re making the journey up there, why not look in on one of these two gigs too?

CeReNeM presents Ian Pace (piano) and Richard Haynes (clarinets)

The Centre for Research in New Music (CeReNeM) at the University of Huddersfield presents two of the world’s premier interpreters of new music. Acclaimed pianist Ian Pace performs in a free lunchtime concert at 1.15 p.m. on 18 November, and Australian clarinettist Richard Haynes presents an evening recital on 20 November at 7.30 p.m. Both events are in St Paul’s Hall at the University of Huddersfield.

Tickets for the evening concert are priced £6 (full)/£3 (concessions). Campus maps are available at http://www.hud.ac.uk/uni/maps.html. Additional concert information is available by contacting livemusic@hud.ac.uk or 01484 472426.

Ian Pace features works by three great figures of 20th century music who we have lost in the last year. Seminal pieces by Stockhausen, Kagel, and Radulescu are paired with a short early work by Sciarrino and two recent pieces (both originally premiered by Pace) by Sam Mirelman and composition lecturer Aaron Cassidy. He will also present a paper on Michael Finnissy in the department’s Research Forum.

Richard Haynes, a young Australian clarinettist who has quickly built an international reputation for his performances of the most demanding, virtuosic music, will be in residence at Huddersfield for two days, working with undergraduate and post-graduate composers and performers. His residency culminates in a concert of works by Liza Lim (recently appointed Professor of Composition and Director of CeReNeM), Richard Barrett, Franco Donatoni, John Rodgers, Johannes Maria Staud, and composition Masters students Pat Allison and Johnny Herbert. Richard has performed with such ensembles as Klangforum Wien, 175 East, Ensemble Modern, musikFabrik, and ELISION, and has developed several innovative solo multimedia projects which have been presented in Switzerland, Australia, and China.

This is the inaugural year of the CeReNeM Concert Series, which features a wide range of new, experimental, and improvised music performed by Huddersfield students and guest artists of international renown.

  1. xyzzz ___, if the Rambler can’t, I can. (Or, rather, I will … and if you’re nice & the musos agree, I’ll happily share. … But really, you should just come to the concerts.)
