The Philharmonia’s innovative Music of Today series offers the chance to hear new music.
The culminating concert of the Philharmonia Orchestra's Composers Academy, in partnership with the Royal Philharmonic Society, presents world premières from three composers. Over the course of the year they have worked closely with Philharmonia Orchestra musicians, as well as with Unsuk Chin and other visiting composers. This is an exciting opportunity to encounter a wide range of musical styles from the newest generation of composers in the UK.
