Sara Mohr-Pietsch and Robert Worby introduce further highlights from the 2014 Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival including a major premiere from this year's composer-in-residence, James Dillon.
Dillon's new piece is a setting of the Sabat Mater Dolorosa interspersed with Julie Kriseva's commentary on the poem, Herethique de l'amour, creating a large-scale meditation on the idea of lamentation.
