10 YEARS OF MUSIC. 10 COMMISSIONS. 10 COMPOSERS

10 YEARS OF MUSIC. 10 COMMISSIONS. 10 COMPOSERS

As a musical celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Melbourne Recital Centre, 10 composers have each created a new work to be performed at the Centre throughout 2019.

The 10 composers, selected by Marshall McGuire, Melbourne Recital Centre’s Director of Programming, represent a diverse range of musical styles but are unified by their critical acclaim and dedication to their craft.

The program features an outstanding line-up of composers and performers, with each work designed to connect audience and performer in an intimate and personal way, making a significant contribution to the repertoire, across a variety of styles.
