An ARVO PÄRT…and a Littlemore festival event
Hugo Ticciati has worked closely with Arvo Pärt, and is known equally for his inventive programmes as well as for his captivating playing. Now Ticciati brings his acclaimed musical ‘family’ to Oxford. Swedish for un- modern, O/Modernt’s philosophy is encapsulated in the motto they borrowed from John Cage: Invent the past. Revise the future. Believing that music is never really ‘old’ or ‘new’, because it exists purely in the moment of its sounding, Ticciati has created this fascinating programme that covers more than 500 years of musical understanding. Prepare to be surprised and delighted!

About the artists
As violinist, leader and conductor, Hugo Ticciati imbibes all forms of creativity, whether it be performing world premieres, improvising with monks, or devising innovative programmes for O/Modernt, which he founded in 2011. Alongside his passion for discovering the music of previous epochs and non-western traditions, Hugo embraces the world of contemporary music. With his growing reputation for innovative programming, he is frequently asked to devise and present concerts and festivals with a unique twist, while his love of chamber music has led him to develop special artistic partnerships with members of the O/Modernt Soloists as well as other internationally renowned artists. Hugo collaborates regularly with top-level chamber orchestras, including the Manchester Camerata, Kremerata Baltica, the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. Most recently, he has been invited to work with the Stuttgart, Swedish and Australian Chamber orchestras. Hugo gives master-classes and lectures on music-related subjects both in Scandinavia and internationally.
Directed by violinist Hugo Ticciati, the O/Modernt Chamber Orchestra is an integral part of O/Modernt. Comprised of top players from all over Europe, the orchestra performs eclectic and adventurous programmes, with anything from arrangements of medieval motets to Bach, Webern and Metallica. The orchestra regularly collaborates with world-renowned soloists such as Evelyn Glennie, Steven Isserlis, Anne Sofie von Otter and Nils Landgren, as well as jazz artists, rappers, choreographers, rock- balancers and more!
