LPOnline: Debut Sounds

Debut Sounds is our annual concert of new compositions by the LPO Young Composers.

In an evening celebrating young talent, James MacMillan conducted an ensemble of musicians from the LPO Foyle Future Firsts Development Programme alongside LPO players. These world premieres, from our 2019/20 cohort of composers, are each uniquely inspired by Beethoven.

The concert is free to watch on our YouTube channel

The 2019/20 Young Composers Programme is supported by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the Polska Music Programme, the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation and the RVW Trust.
