Join us for the first showcase of the year for our home-grown composers. Expect a wide range of styles, experimentation and music that you wouldn’t find anywhere else, written and performed by students at the Conservatoire.

Frontiers welcomes you to a special week of events centered around a residency from the remarkable Swedish composer Karin Rehnqvist.

Rehnqvist is one of Scandinavia’s most well-known contemporary composers, whose work is regularly performed all over the world. Her powerfully unforgettable music incorporates elements of folk music such as the vocal technique of Kulning, and she has worked in every medium ranging from orchestral work and operas through to ensembles made of instruments made from ice.

Other highlights of the week include a portrait concert of Conservatoire-based Irish composer Ed Bennett performed by the viscerally charged Decibel, and a Composers' Platform featuring a host of world premières from our dynamic composition department.
