ST Lee Professorial Fellowship 2013-14:
2013-14 ST Lee Visiting Professorial Fellowships at the School of Advanced Study have been awarded to Prof. Brian Ferneyhough and Dr Lawrence Albert Joseph.
Brian Ferneyhough, currently William H Bonsall Professor at Stanford University, is one of the most original and influential composers in contemporary music. His work, recognised by such international awards as the Ernst von Siemens Musikpreis, evokes a compressed musical world of dislocated events, colliding pulses and shimmering textures. Prof Ferneyhough will be based at the School, in close association with the Institute of Musical Research, in November 2013.
Prof Ferneyhough will attend a series of public performances of his works as well as give talks at the School and elsewhere. See the full programme [PDF]
