Do we need a new compass? | BCMG NEXT
Jennifer Blackwell Performance Space, Symphony Hall
8 Centenary Square, B1 2EA
Addressing the need for new directions in contemporary music, bringing our concert culture up to the tempo of global developments, and updating our international musical co-ordinates, composers are answering the question, Do we need a new compass?
During a time when global connectivity is both revolutionised by technology, and held back by politics and pandemic, we are determined to move into a better future together. Do we need a new compass sees 3 concerts in 3 countries, by 3 ensembles; FontanaMIX Ensemble, Das Neue Ensemble, and of course Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.
We will also see a performance of Pierrot Lunaire by our early career NEXT musicians. Join us for a lunch time concert with chamber works by composers Kaspar Querfurth, Daniele Ghisi and others.
