Sunday 23 November


St Paul's Hall, Huddersfield

Following last years' successes, Cikada has again been invited to the prominent Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, the UK’s largest festival of new and experimental music. This year we will bring with us pieces by Liza Lim and Jon Øivind Ness.

Liza Lim: Winding Bodies: 3 Knots UK premiere Liza Lim: The Hearts Ear Liza Lim: Philtre Jon Øivind Ness: Gimilen UK premiere

hcmf// writes on their site:

Cikada Ensemble present the UK premiere of a major new work by UK-based composer Liza Lim, Winding Bodies: 3 Knots, exploring the old Nordic tale of sailors ‘buying the wind' tied in knots. Untying the first knot would release a breeze, the second a strong wind and the third contained a hurricane which should never be untied. Two of Lim's older works and a UK premiere from Norwegian composer Jon Øivind Ness complete the programme.

Produced by hcmf// supported by Music Norway and the Royal Norwegian Embassy
