The Festival Ensemble premieres Fakeries by Huw Belling at the 2014 St Magnus International Festival on the Orkney Isles.
“Inspired by footage of an unbalanced washing machine shaking itself apart, Fakeries is a wash-cycle of invented folk dances that spins itself into oblivion.”
Manchester Chamber Choir will premiere Huw’s carol Lux Fulgebit Hodie on Saturday the 14th of December at 7.30pm Christ Church, Darley Avenue, West Didsbury. Tickets here.
Jack Symonds has recorded the 12 minute piano work ‘Diffusions’ which he commissioned this year from Huw. The score note reads:
Diffusions mostly obscures its own simple material. Occasionally the underlying simplicity is left in peace; at other times it is possessed by the machine in the ghost.
See the score.
I Have Had Enough (trailer above) including Nunc Dimittis by Jack Symonds which Huw Conducted for Sydney Chamber Opera, has received positive reviews, including this from the Sydney Morning Herald.
