Soundings, the Austrian Cultural Forum London’s unique platform for contemporary music now in its 8th year, presents and profiles young composers and artists from the UK and Austria in workshops, symposia and performances. With multiple premières, collaborations and broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 and profiles on Austrian ORF television, Soundings has established itself as a key event in the music calendar of the UK, and has already travelled in concert to Vienna, Venice, Bayreuth, and Oslip Mühle (Austria).
The unique opportunity afforded by Soundings has resulted in outstanding new works and performances from these highly collaborative weeks of exchanges, discussions and innovation.
This concert offers the opportunity to hear selected works from the past 8 years.
