Composer Brian Ferneyhough at June in Buffalo 2013

We’ve been profiling some of the June in Buffalo 2013 ensembles and faculty composers, and thought we’d take a quick look at composer and longtime friend of the Center for 21st Century Music, Brian Ferneyhough.

Brian Ferneyhough
Ferneyhough was here for June in Buffalo 2005, and his music enjoyed some sensitive and virtuosic performances: Ensemble SurPlus performed his chamber work Incipits, Quatour Diotima interpretted his String Quartet No. 2, and pianist Ian Pace performed Epigrams. Ferneyhough later returned here for a short residency in February of 2009 alongside composer Hilda Paredes and the Arditti Quartet, who performed a concert in Slee Hall, as well as workshopped and recorded UB student works.

More on Ferneyhough can be found through his publisher Edition Peters, on his wikipedia article, and at the guardian.

Ferneyhough will be giving daily master classes to June in Buffalo composers during June in Buffalo 2013, as well as give a lecture on his recent projects. His music will be featured throughout the evening concerts during the week, including his chamber work Terrain, to be performed by Ensemble Signal, and Mnémosyme, for bass flute and tape, to be performed by Ensemble Linea.

Check out the video of below of Ensemble Linea interpretting Ferneyhough’s 2008 ensemble piece Chronos Aion:
