New music should be relevant to our society. These are fast, exhilarating and often unnerving times, where life – and attitudes – can change as quickly as the tide. And our mission has always been rooted in celebrating the new, and championing innovation. Our 2018/19 season is teeming with crosscultural life, with 13 new commissions, 11 world premieres and three UK premiere performances. Programmes that revel in today’s diverse artistic landscape. Compelling stories that deserve to be told. New music - now.
