Pedro Alvarez’s Current Activities

Pedro_wordpressFinal year PhD candidate Pedro Alvarez is having a very busy artistic season with performances of his works across Europe.

Last April, ensemble Hand Werk from Cologne premiered his newest piece, ‘Two Surfaces’, at the Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik in Germany, which was also broadcast by radio WDR3 and will be repeated in a concert at the Alte Schmiede gallery in Vienna next October.

His piece ‘Debris’ was premiered in Huddersfield by ELISION Ensemble last February and other pieces were performed in Barcelona by Ensemble CrossingLines (Spain) last March, and by Ensemble Interface (Germany) in Adria, Italy, last May.

Last year Alvarez’s music was performed in Switzerland by Ensemble Interface (Dampfzentrale Bern) and Klaasje Nieuwhof (Tanzhaus Zürich); in Germany by Bettina Berger and Anna D’Errico (OpenSpace Damrstadt); and Belgium by Spectra Ensemble (ISCM World Music Days in Ghent).
