On Saturday, 8 March, Cologne-based ensemble hand werk are giving the first of the Harvard Group for New Music’s concerts for the year. In a mammoth programme that includes works by my colleagues here Sivan Cohen-Elias, Marta Gentilucci, Justin Hoke, Tim McCormack, Manuela Meier, Marek Poliks, Ian Power, and Sabrina Schroeder, they will play my trio The Incredulity of St Thomas. Many thanks go to Heather Roche, Niklas Seidl, and Jonathan Hepfer for all their hard work and also to the HGNM team for making this happen.
footnote: In past years on this day I have posted something to mark International Women’s Day. As I haven’t had time to put together anything this year, suffice it to say it’s a pleasure to be marking the day with a surprisingly balanced concert for once!
