BBC Proms Inspire Young Composers' Concert

The Aurora Orchestra, conducted by Nicholas Collon, performs the winning entries from this year's Proms Inspire Young Composers' Competition.

Now in its thirteenth year, the BBC Proms Inspire Young Composers' Competition continues to provide a platform for budding composers across the UK, providing what most composers only dream of - the chance to have their music played by professional musicians and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Entries of all genres and for any instrumentation are welcomed and each composition is judged on the following criteria - compositional idea, originality, creativity and appropriate technical ability. The only rules are that entries should last no longer than five minutes and be scored so that other musicians can perform them.
