James Weeks – String Quartet (to Alberto Caeiro)
Richard Glover – Seventh Inversions
Rozalie Hirs – Zenit

The Bozzini Quartet bring their uncompromising austerity and generous sensitivity to the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival for the fourth time with a programme that explores the outermost bounds of the practice we once called minimalism. Two UK premieres and one world premiere explore uncharted regions of a warmly human, ineffable space of unknown possibilities.

Time: 14:00
Location: Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, St. Peter's Church, Byram Street, Huddersfield, United Kingdom
