The Concertgebouw, Amsterdam has announced Davies as its next Composer in Residence for the 18/19 season. The role will truly see Davies ‘in residence’; residing in Amsterdam for several months, she will lead workshops with young composers and collaborate on special performances of her music by students of the Conservatorium of Amsterdam. To crown the residency, Davies will write a new work for the Asko|Schönberg Ensemble, to be premiered in May 2019.
Other events already announced include a performance of her Song of Pure Nothingness, as well as the reed quintet Calefax premiering a new transcription of The Beginning of the World (by their bass clarinet player Jelte Althuis) in December 2018.
