RCM New Perspectives, our flagship new music group, explores a dramatic programme of music, including a UK and world premieres by RCM doctoral composers and RCM composition professor Alison Kay.

Thalleïn, meaning ‘to sprout’, illustrates Xenakis’ fascination with mathematical models – performed to mark the 100th anniversary of the composer’s birth. Harrison Birtwistle, who died this year, explored the ritualistic in Silbury Air, depicting an unusual prehistoric mound in Wiltshire. Meanwhile, African American composer George Lewis’ recent work is about disruption and resistance, inspired by the influential book Modernism and the Harlem Renaissance.
