BCMG players

At BCMG’s heart is an ensemble of superb musicians, many drawn from within the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, whose virtuosity is matched by their commitment and enthusiasm. It is the specialist skills of these players – developed over the years through BCMG – which attract the world’s leading artists to work with the Group.

From the outset, BCMG’s co-founders Simon Clugston and Ulrich Heinen felt that it was important composers should have the freedom to write for whatever instrumentation they chose and not feel obliged to compose for a fixed instrumental line-up. This flexibility continues to enable BCMG to commission and perform a wider variety of music than would otherwise be possible.
