The festival opens (7 Oct) with the Italian pianist Carlo Grante, whose programme includes new pieces by Lawrence Ball, and by Keith Barnard. Like all but one of the concerts, it is in the Rosslyn Hill Chapel, 3 Pilgrim's Place, Hampstead.
Barnard performs himself in a multimedia event the following Saturday (14 Oct), when he is joined by another Italian pianist and composer, Allessandra Celletti.
At All Hallows Church (15 Oct), in an afternoon concert, the Solem String Quartet with mezzo-soprano Catherine King and clarinettist Stephen Bennett play pieces by Celletti, Barnard and Bartok, and others.
Back at Rosslyn Hill Chapel (19 Oct), pianists Sandra and Jeroen Van Veen work for two pianos, four hands, including pieces by Jeroen himself, Ball and Max Richter.
The Trio D'Angelo play music by James D'Angelo in a programme that includes Arvo Paart's haunting Spiegel im Spiegel.
The festival ends (26 Oct) with Pataphysical Transmission, an Ambisonic Composers' Collective Surround relay. Maybe take a pillow too...
