About the Event
A celebration of Oliver Knussen and Colin Matthews’ flagship Contemporary Composition and Performance course at Snape Maltings is a fitting and potent blend of new music by emerging new generation of composers alongside works by musical figureheads. Seven world premieres are prefaced by Harrison Birtwistle’s playful perpetual motion and enveloped in the velvety stillness and ghostly apparitions conjured by Abrahamsen and Dallapiccola in their night music.
