Martin Iddon’s HCMF piece Sapindales is being broadcast on ‘Zeit-Ton’ in Austria on Monday 1st March at 11:03pm.
This will be a programme dedicated to the works featured in Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival last year.
Founded in 1978, the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival has long been the largest hub for new and experimental sounds in the UK. The restrictions caused by the pandemic were tough blows for the latest festival, from November 2020, but the artistic gains of three radio concerts broadcast by the BBC were undiminished.
After our broadcast of James Dillon’s Pharmakeia on 25 January 2021, this edition of Zeit-Ton provides further impressions from the festival, the events of which may have been moved onto the airwaves, but are no less impressive: with new pieces and British premieres from a younger generation, including Lisa Robertson, Arne Gieshoff, Martin Iddon, and Angharad Davies, performed by the Explore Ensemble, the GBSR Duo (piano and percussion), as well as the clarinettist, Heather Roche.
Sapindales was premiered by Heather Roche last November, on a concert broadcast live from the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival on BBC Radio 3.
We at Composers Edition are looking forward to publishing Sapindales in the very near future!
