New music by 2016/2017 Composers’ Academy fellows Lisa Illean, Gareth Moorcraft, and Donghoon Shin, is available for digital download on NMC Recordings on Friday 3 November, and worldwide from 17 November. Visit for more information.

The Philharmonia Composers' Academy is presented in partnership with the Royal Philharmonic Society and allied to the Orchestra’s prestigious Music of Today contemporary music series.

The Academy offers an annual opportunity for three talented emerging composers to write an original chamber work for a Philharmonia Ensemble, and engage in specially curated seminars, masterclasses, instrument exploration sessions and a ‘works in progress’ workshop. Composers are led through the 10-month writing process by Music of Today Artistic Director, Unsuk Chin.
