BCMG

CrossCurrents is a new nine-day University of Birmingham festival that brings together internationally acclaimed professional performers and student musicians, as well as some of the UK’s most respected composers.

BCMG close the inaugural CrossCurrents festival with a multifaceted and scintillating programme featuring no fewer than twelve world premieres. As the New Music Ensemble presented Luciano Berio’s Folk Songs on the first day of CrossCurrents, BCMG close the festival performing a new set of specially commissioned songs by eleven composers, including compositional staff at the University of Birmingham and Birmingham Conservatoire. Along with Charlotte Bray, Judith Weir, Richard Baker and post-graduates from each institution, these composers have been invited to write their own ‘folk songs’ inspired by Berio’s 1964 original.

CrossCurrents presents concerts interspersed with workshops, talks, foyer performances and exhibitions. For full concert and events listings, including ticket prices, please go to: birmingham.ac.uk/events
