Frontiers Series 2018

Frontiers Series 2018

Another year, another Frontiers series full of exciting and innovative music here at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire!

From celebrity masterclasses and performances of contemporary music, as well as music fresh from the talented minds of our very own innovative composers, the 2018 Frontiers series has everything for the new music lover.

This year’s series starts off with a bang when Royal Birmingham Conservatoire warmly welcomes the internationally renowned collaborative dynamic duo, Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion, who will be giving a public performance of their collaborative pieces, Both Sitting Duet, and Body Not Fit For Purpose in The Lab on the 15th of January.

In February, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire welcomes pianist Xenia Pestova who will be performing a programme of music for the Magnetic Resonator Piano (including an world premiere of an original composition by the performer) on the 20th of February in the Recital Hall which prefaces her Public Research Seminar in Workshop 1 later that day.

Alongside these events over the next two months there will be Composers’ Platforms to showcase the work of our student composers, student-lead ensembles performing original boundary-crossing music, the Transitional Metal album launch by composer and pianist Fumiko Miyachi as well as many other events to be announced throughout the year.
