NMC is the digital partner of the Philharmonia Orchestra’s Composers’ Academy, presented in partnership with the Royal Philharmonic Society and allied to the Philharmonia’s Music of Today contemporary music series. Under the guidance of Unsuk Chin, Artistic Director of the Music of Today series, and other visiting composers, the scheme offers three talented emerging composers each year the opportunity to write an original chamber work for an ensemble of Philharmonia players. The composers undertake a year of training and mentoring, including with NMC, culminating in a commission for a 10-minute work which is premiered in a Music of Today concert at Royal Festival Hall and recorded for digital release on NMC.
