This one-day symposium brings together invited academics from across the UK to discuss the contribution to British musical life made by Michael Finnissy, in the year of his seventieth birthday. Widely known as a composer who in his music directly and indirectly engages with a range of musical traditions, cultures and histories, Finnissy has also been an energetic and committed supporter of a large number of composers and musicians, especially in Britain, not least as a performer and teacher. The symposium takes for its focus Finnissy and British music, as viewed through the prisms of performance and collaboration.
