hcmf// 2019 Programme
hcmf// 2019: Friday 15 – Sunday 24 November 2019
Featuring 60+ events, over 50 premieres and a whole day of free music, hcmf// 2019 offers one of the festival’s subtlest and most curious programmes ever: 10 days of diverse musical exploration celebrating a multiplicity of voices – a chorus of artists, all playing at their own pitch.
In building the programme around the practice of Swedish Composer in Residence Hanna Hartman, hcmf// 2019 features subtle, low-key innovations from many of modern music’s most uncompromising artists; from Ann Cleare and Frank Denyer to Jenny Hval, Christine Sun Kim, Ellen Arkbro and Kelly Jayne Jones – those who dare to travel around the norm, into quiet, unexpected places where nuance lives on.
The festival’s 20+ world premieres include works by Ann Cleare, Jürg Frey, Marcus Granberg, Georg Friedrich Haas, Hanna Hartman and Naomi Pinnock, as well as a host of UK Premieres from artists including Thomas Ankersmit, Cat Lamb, Aart Strootman, Barblina Meierhans and Heinz Holliger.
Early Bird ticket prices available until Friday 4 October.
