Composer Luke Carver Goss was commissioned by the award-winning Black Dyke Band to write a piece which uses the structure of a relay race. Pure Gold: a 4x4 Relay Race is divided into four three minute 'legs' - power, speed, losing ground and finally, triumph - and tells the tale of success through team work and sporting pride with poet Ian McMillan and The Manchester Chorale.


20 outstanding new works, each lasting 12 minutes, commissioned to feature centre stage of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. New Music 20x12 is a UK-wide commissioning programme consisting of twenty new pieces of music, each of 12 minutes in length, celebrating the talent and imagination of the UK’s musical community as part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

Over the next 12 months you will be able to enjoy performances of these 20 new works in a wide range of venues and unexpected locations across the length and breadth of the UK – from churches, arts centres and concert halls to public spaces, festivals and a train journey. Each piece will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and available to purchase as mp3/FLAC download from NMC.

Visit our New Music 20x12 Project Page for more information about the twenty works.
