The opening concert of hcmf// 2016 saw adventurous Irish composer Jennifer Walshe pair with one of the wold’s most acclaimed string quartets – the Arditti Quartet to perform the UK premiere of her latest work and hcmf// co-commission Everything Is Important.

The work is a declaration of love to life on earth and since its premiere at hcmf// has gone on to receive 8 more performances to date including festivals in Oslo and Amsterdam. The piece will also be performed at festivals Klangspuren Schwaz, Sacrum Profanum and Wien Modern in 2017.

We would like to congratulate Jenny on the success of this fabulous work.
