Past commissions

At the heart of BCMG’s work is the commissioning and performance of new works from the most exciting composers of our time. The Group has premiered some 150 new works by leading UK and overseas composers and has given over 550 performances of these pieces. Most have been commissioned with the help of a large number of individuals through BCMG’s ground-breaking Sound Investment commissioning scheme.

Below you can find more information on over 70 works we have commissioned through Sound Investment since 1992, including reviews, programme notes, links to recordings and much more. This section of the website will be regularly updated with news on past commissions as we find it.
