HARP: International Conference on Artistic Research

  • Royal Northern College of Music (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Royal Northern College of Music’s Hub for Artistic Research in Performance (HARP) will host a 2-day research conference to be held in Manchester, England on June 28-9, 2018. Amy will be presenting a lecture-recital titled "Contemporary, Classical Music Demystified: Spotlight on Canada" featuring works for solo violin by Jacques Hétu and Jeffrey Ryan.

Keynote speakers will include Dr Luk Vaes (Orpheus Institute, Belgium) and the conference will incorporate forums and a research student training event. Artistic performance research remains at an exciting stage of development. While presenting challenges there are also rich opportunities for developing new methodologies and engaging with musicians who have not previously viewed their practice through a research lens.

Le concert explorera l'evolution de la musique françaises du XXe siècle. Après deux morceaux pour deux musiciens, les musiciens interpréteront « Ainsi la Nuit », l’un des quatuors à cordes français considéré parmi les plus importants du XXe siècle. Composé par Henri Dutilleux de 1973 à 1976 dans son appartement de l’île Saint-Louis, à deux pas de la Cité internationale des arts, ce quatuor invite à une représentation musicale d’une nuit à Paris à travers sept sections différentes : de Nocturne à Constellations en passant par Temps Suspendu.

Crozman et Hillis jouent sur des instruments qui leur sont prêtés par la Banque d’instruments de musique du Conseil des arts du Canada : Cameron Crozman sur le violoncelle Stradivarius “Bonjour” (1696) et l’archet de violoncelle Adam Shaw (1830) ; Amy Hillis, quant à elle, sur le violon Joannes Franciscus Pressenda (1820).
