Ten Pieces Trailblazers!
What is Ten Pieces Trailblazers?
Ten Pieces Trailblazers challenges students to rethink orchestral music - what it sounds like, who can make it, and how it's used - through ten trailblazing composers and their pieces of music.
This new set of pieces showcases works that have helped expand our musical horizons, pieces that have introduced new cultures and sound worlds into the orchestra, and composers whose lives and works have made them pioneers.
Trailblazers delves into the world of Film and Television for the first time and explores music with influences from across the globe
Orchestral music is a living, evolving art form. These pieces help to tell that ever-changing story.
