Festival directors and curators – we’re here for you! Whether you’re new music old-hands or looking to bring your audiences fresh experiences, we and our cohort of professional composers can deliver for you with works, programming suggestions and extras such as festival talks, not to mention your very own commissions.
Find the ideal music for your festival
If you head over to our catalogue search or any category you’ll be able to search and filter according to composer(s), duration and year(s) of composition. You can also select particular composer(s) and combine any of these with text search of anything from a particular instrument to a theme or type of work. Here are some examples:
Great repertoire ideas
If you’ve already got an idea of what you’re looking for – perhaps something to fit the theme of your concert, or partner a repertoire classic – go ahead and send us a call for works and we’ll gather a hand-picked collection of great suggestions for you.
Living composers continue to produce new works so there may be works by our composers which aren’t yet published but could be perfect for your performance. Plus, often our composers will be happy to make adjustments to existing pieces so they work just as well for you. Find out more with a call for works.
Looking for something a bit different?
As contemporary artists many of our composers have created works for a range of digital, electronic, multimedia setups. Some are also experienced in creating theatrical and installation works. If this is something that could fit your festival we can help you find the right existing works or composer to work with. Get in touch!
Celebratory publicity for your event
By bringing people together for unique experiences you and your festival have an inspirational story to share. Be featured in our news on the CE website, mailing list and through our social media accounts, with special features and profiles for your events. Take a look at what’s new to see how we celebrate performances of new music!
Commission a new work!
As well as having the privilege of bringing a new work to life, including a premiere in your programme is a great way to build a sense of anticipation and intrigue to draw your audiences in. Here at Composers Edition we want you to know that, whoever you are, you can be a part of musical history by commissioning new work – specially composed for your choir.
Since the process of commissioning can be somewhat of an enigma, we’ve made it our mission to help demystify it for you, guiding you through what is a truly exciting process. And as ever, we’re here to advise and support you throughout your project.
