Described by The Wire Magazine as “a welcome addition to London’s already blossoming contemporary composition scene”, Borough New Music has announced its next season of concerts, from Series 10 starting in October 2018, to Series 17 in June 2019. Altogether, there will be 34 concerts, featuring 67 performers and the works of 132 living composers including 42 premieres. Series 10 starts on Tuesday 2 October 2018 at 1pm featuring the work of the composer-pianist Rob Keeley, in which he will perform alongside Lore Lixenberg (soprano), Victoria Samek (clarinet) and Chris Brannick (percussion).
Apart from 34 new concerts including 42 premieres, they will be collaborating with five new guest artistic directors, for Series 11 (Hollie Harding); Series 12 (Will Handysides & Ailie Robertson); Series 14 (Nathanael Gubler); Series 16 (Listenpony & Hollie Harding), and Series 17 (Matthew Schellhorn).
Artistic Director Clare Simmonds, said: “Each Series in Borough New Music is a very exciting prospect for performers, composers and audiences alike. It is neither a festival, nor a ‘one-off’. Rather, it’s as an ongoing opportunity to celebrate the wonderfully diverse music written today.”
