About the event
New Music Biennial is a showcase of composers and music creators who are pushing the boundaries of music in the UK.
The festival, presented in association with the PRS for Music Foundation, is a unique snapshot of contemporary music in the UK across all genres: classical, world music, jazz, folk, electronic and even music for ice cream vans.
New Music Biennial 2019 comprises 20 new works, featuring new commissions from Gazelle Twin and Max de Wardener, Roderick Williams, Claire M Singer, Khyam Allami, Sona Jobarteh, Arun Ghosh, Sarah Tandy, Forest Swords, Klein, Dan Jones and Sam Eastmond alongside works composed within the last 15 years, including Shiva Feshareki’s acclaimed Dialogue for turntables and orchestra, commissioned by BBC Concert Orchestra in 2018.
Across the weekend works are performed in a range of venues, inviting audiences to discover new music in an interactive way, both inside and outside of traditional concert hall settings.
