With her distinctive and intensely striking sonic language, Berlin-based British composer Rebecca Saunders is one of the leading international representatives of her generation. Born in London in 1967, she studied composition at Edinburgh University with Nigel Osborne and with Wolfgang Rihm in Karlsruhe.

Commissioned in collaboration with international partners, Saunders’ new work will receive its world premiere in Germany, with BCMG giving the UK premiere in 2019.
