  • For £500+ you'll receive all of the above, plus a personal thank you message from the composer

As part of our new series, BCMG at Home, we are excited to announce Soliloquies and Dialogues.

Using these unprecedented times as a stimulus for creativity, we are commissioning a series of new pieces from composers around the globe whose countries have been significantly impacted by COVID-19. 

Composers have been asked to create a piece for a solo artist and will work with that musician over digital platforms to rehearse, refine, and record their music.

We welcome former BCMG Apprentice Composer-in-Residence, Donghoon Shin, to write a new solo piece for violin, to receive its world premiere exclusively on BCMG digital channels.
