Soundings is a unique platform for contemporary music presenting and profiling young composers and artists from the United Kingdom and Austria in workshops, symposia and performance.

Soundings offers you a rare opportunity to meet some of today’s leading composers, watch them at work and hear their latest compositions - many receiving their first UK performance - performed by some of the finest young musicians of today.

In addition, Soundings presents a selection of modern masterworks by composers such as HK Gruber, James MacMillan, Peter Maxwell Davies, Errollyn Wallen, Stephen Montague and Olga Neuwirth.

Soundings will be an in-depth examination of the latest trends in contemporary music. It contrasts the current stylistic developments in Austria and the UK and is a “must” for all those interested in modern music and performance.
