AUSTIN LEUNG Music From The World World premiere FREYA WALEY-COHEN Ink World premiere EUGENE BIRMAN Adagio World premiere
As winners of the RPS Composition Prizes, Austin Leung, Freya Waley-Cohen and Eugene Birman were selected to compose pieces for the Philharmonia's Orchestra's Composers Academy. The culminating concert of the Composers' Academy presents world premieres from these three emerging composers performed under the baton of Anna-Maria Helsing. Over the course of the year, our composers have worked closely with Philharmonia musicians, visiting composers and Unsuk Chin, Artistic Director of Music of Today. This is an exciting opportunity to hear the work of the newest generation of composers in the UK today.
