LSO Discovery Panufnik Young Composers Scheme


Recommended Posts

Thought that this might be of interest to people.

The LSO Discovery Panufnik Young Composers Scheme is an exciting initiative offering six emerging composers each year the opportunity to write for a world-class symphony orchestra. It has been devised by the Orchestra in association with Lady Panufnik in memory of her late husband, the composer Sir Andrzej Panufnik, and is generously supported by the Helen Hamlyn Trust.

Under the guidance of renowned composer Colin Matthews, the scheme enables composers to experiment over time and develop their orchestral writing skills; they form collaborative musical relationships with LSO players as well as witnessing their specially composed pieces put under the microscope by the LSO and François-Xavier Roth in a public workshop rehearsal – a major learning curve.

For the Panufnik Scheme 2010, we are delighted that composer James MacMillan is able to act as Guest Composition Director, while Colin Matthews is on sabbatical. We are also pleased to welcome back Panufnik Graduate Christian Mason as the Scheme’s first Composition Support, providing help and guidance to the composers on matters of detail, orchestration, and working with the LSO.
