Introducing Ten Pieces Trailblazers!
Ten Pieces Trailblazers is a brand new set of pieces, films and resources focusing on composers and works that have changed the way we think of classical and orchestral music – how it can be made, what it can sound like, and who can create it.
We want to showcase 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. For the first time, we will be exploring music for Film and Television and looking closer into music with influences from across the globe. Orchestral music is a living, evolving art form. These pieces help to tell that ever-changing story.
Drum roll please...
