New Music

This year there’s new music from over 20 composers writing solo, ensemble and cross-art-form commissions, as well as our expanded Blue Touch Paper programme where we make experiments with interdisciplinary work.

  • Composers developing works with musicians

    The London Sinfonietta's scheme giving composers the chance of writing new music with the ensemble. Works will be performed live, recorded and streamed on the internet to a wide audience.

  • Commissioning work lies at the heart of the London Sinfonietta, and this season's new pieces are a testament to this ambition.

  • Short works from master composers

    Bite-sized pieces by leading composers commissioned, recorded and released as downloads.

  • New music meets different art forms in alternative spaces

    Our strand of Blue Touch Paper events runs parallel to our work in the concert hall, giving composers and collaborators from other arts and science disciplines the opportunity to explore ideas and create new interdisciplinary work.
