Frontiers Festival is a two-week celebration of bold, new music and is recognised as one of the UK’s most ambitious festivals of contemporary music and interdisciplinary practice.
Frontiers 2015 will take a close look at technology in contemporary music, and in particular at the intersection between electronic and acoustic music.
The Festival will explore existing live electronics repertoire and showcase music created by our students using the Integra Live software and the resources of the Conservatoire’s groundbreaking Integra Lab.
Among the highlights, a rare performance of Jonathan Harvey’s seminal From Silence side by side with Gérard Grisey’s Le temps et l’écume, the world première of Ed Bennett’s new PRS commission for piano and live electronics, and a monographic concert by the Ensemble Court-circuit devoted to the music of Philippe Hurel on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
The Festival will also feature contemporary pianist Xenia Pestova, the experimental and energetic Decibel Ensemble and our own Thallein Ensemble for what promises to be a memorable journey of discovery.
