Birmingham Contemporary Music Group

— Arnolfini
Soliloquies and Dialogues - music made in lockdown
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Using the unpredictable events of COVID-19 as a stimulus for creativity, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group commissioned a series of new music pieces from composers around the globe during lockdown.
Composers were asked to create pieces for solo artists and were connected with musicians over digital platforms to rehearse, refine, and record their music. Soliloquies and Dialogues shows the importance of connectivity and creativity during the most devastating of times, and that whilst we were all unified by lockdown, our reactions were still highly individual.
On the path out of a live performance drought we are delighted to be sharing these new pieces with you during two world premiere performances at Arnolfini in Bristol on 11 June and CBSO Centre in Birmingham on 15 June.
Experience contemporary music for a new creative era, and BCMG’s new partnership with contemporary art gallery, Arnolfini. This will be a poignant celebration of new things to come, and a reflection of the journey we have all taken together, yet on our own.

Please note capacity for this event will be limited, to ensure Covid security requirements.

Arnolfini exhibition galleries will be open late ahead of the concert giving audiences an opportunity to visit:

Jo Spence: From Fairy Tales to Phototherapy | Photographs from The Hyman Collection 

A Picture of Health | Women Photographers from The Hyman Collection

A Picture of Health | Look at This Skin...It Keeps Changing

Defiant I Stand for A Cause That’s My Own That Sometimes I Don’t Understand by ron

Exquisite Corpse

Grey Areas | Jessie Edwards Thomas

This event marks the start of a new collaboration between Arnolfini and Birmingham Contemporary Music Group. We are thrilled to be working together to bring some of the best, innovative new music to Bristol. We look forward to welcoming them back in the autumn and in spring 2022 – dates to follow!
