Composition: Wales

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales is offering a unique and exciting opportunity: composers are invited to submit a score to be considered for Composition: Wales which will take place in February 2018.

The project forms part of the Learning activity of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. The aim is to showcase works by composers in Wales worthy of wider exposure and is organised in collaboration with Composers of Wales, Tŷ Cerdd and Welsh Music Guild.

Brief: The perfect concert opener or an encore for a BBC National Orchestra of Wales concert, such as St David’s Day or an international tour.

This year's selected scores are:

Mosaic by John Senter
Hard Wired – Mvt II by Lucy McPhee
Concentrations by Gareth Churchill
High Aldons by Ian Lawson
Electric Bagatelle by Luciano Williamson
The Magic Thief by Iestyn Harding
Blue Lab by Claire Victoria Roberts
