Musicologist Richard Toop will reflect on his close relationship with Stockhausen and his work (especially the later pieces), as well as touching on Stockhausen’s continuing appeal to some younger composers. His free public lecture will also look at some favourite new compositional practices in a sector increasingly connected through technology, despite its geo-fragmentary nature. With rare intelligence and insight, Richard Toop has maintained peerless respect across a career spanning several decades. He is indeed a very special guest of BIFEM in 2014.
