CompositionToday Interviews

We're delighted to be able to offer C:T readers some of Daniel Jaffé's excellent articles on leading composers. Composers interviewed are: Oliver Knussen, James Macmillan, Jonathan Harvey, Alexander Goehr, and Diana Burrell.

Each one a fascinating read.

In a fascinating new article, Jeffrey Snedeker looks at the Natural Horn and its relevance to composers today.

C:T talks to composer Emily Hall about her work and the innovative Camberwell Composers Collective, or "c3".

The Sound Bank now contains samples of every note of every major instrument. Best of all, the samples are easily browsable using our easy-to-use interactive tool. Why not get started by checking out the tuba.

We've added an MP3 player for the C:T Showcase page, so you can easily browse a selection of the files composers have uploaded to their showcase sites. It's early days, but we already think it's a big improvement. Your feedback is very welcome.

C:T talks to George Vass , conductor and artistic director of the highly successful Presteigne Festival in the Welsh borders, and London's Hampstead & Highgate. Both festivals feature new music prominently, but also crucially pull in faithful audiences.

C:T talks to Lior Navok, a young Israeli composer whose music has been performed by the likes of Radio Philharmonie Hannover NDR, Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

Following the successful horn workshop, we've now added samples of stangard horn (including stopped and muted), as well as the Wagner Tuba

We're delighted to present the results of our first ever workshop for composers. In June we put out a call for pieces, and last week leading UK horn player Tim Jackson came and recorded 7 pieces which you can now view and listen to online. Each page has a comments form at the bottom, and we'd love to get feedback from the composers themselves and other CT members.

The workshops were a great success and we hope to one for another instrument in the very near future. Stay tuned!
