"Come and discover 20 exciting new voices - you might just be among the first to hear a modern masterpiece.
In Sounds New the Orchestra shines a spotlight on 20 diverse, creative voices from across the country, who will each write 4-minute works for full orchestra. These short works will be given their World Premieres in a celebration of new music by the CBSO, conducted by Clark Rundell.
Commissioned as part of our centenary celebrations, we’re excited to introduce these brand-new pieces to the world - so come along and try something new, you might just be among the first to hear a modern masterpiece.
