An article discusses the upcoming fest.

In this year’s Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, director Graham McKenzie, who took up the post after helming Glasgow’s CCA, seems less concerned than before with exploring shifting currents in experimentalism, exploiting mixed media and creating a pop ambience.

Instead he’s focusing the 32nd festival on composers. This, after all, is an event where such giants as Cage, Stockhausen, Boulez and Berio were regularly found.
