Nico Muhly composer
Student composers New Works
The annual Britten Sinfonia Composers’ Workshop has become a firm fixture in the calendars of up-and-coming student composers. This year, Nico Muhly, who is in residence with Britten Sinfonia during January and February 2010, will select five pieces written by student composers to be rehearsed and performed by Britten Sinfonia. The workshop is a fascinating opportunity for audiences as well as students to hear the advice and opinions of one of the hottest properties in America’s musical community.
“Very useful – [Oliver Knussen’s] incredibly sharp ears picked out several details that greatly improved my piece and his general comments were also interesting” 2008 student composer
The workshop takes place from 10.30am in the concert hall, with the final concert performance at 3.30pm.
