Event: Orchestral Sounds

Sound and Music and the London Graduate Orchestra are delighted to present Orchestral Sounds, a captivating evening at St Leonard’s in Shoreditch exploring the art of composing for orchestra.

The event will showcase two brand new works written for the LGO by composers Emma-Kate Matthews and David Roche.

The works were developed over the course of a six-month residency programme that saw the composers deepen their understanding of the orchestral sound world. Through open and collaborative workshop sessions, Emma-Kate and David were encouraged to experiment and push the boundaries of orchestral composition. Their resulting works are beautifully contrasting and equally brilliant, displaying unique talent and two very individual voices. They will be presented alongside Ravel’s orchestral masterpiece Le Tombeau de Couperin.

This event forms part of our Talent Development programme, aimed at providing development opportunities for composers to create new work with and for some of the UK’s leading ensembles and presenters of new music.

About the London Graduate Orchestra

The London Graduate Orchestra was founded by conductor Claire Lampon and composer Kemal Yusuf in 2013.  Our aim is to offer emerging graduates the opportunity to perform in a high standard orchestra before entering the professional field. Made up of the finest young musicians in London, the London Graduate Orchestra provides a platform for its members to showcase their talent and capabilities. This extends to young composers who have the opportunity to have their music workshopped and performed by the LGO. We also hold open rehearsals for young conductors to lead the orchestra in a constructive and welcoming environment. 

About Portfolio

Aimed at talented composers at an early stage in their career, Sound and Music’s Portfolio scheme provides a key development opportunity for composers to create new work with and for some of the UK’s leading ensembles and presenters of new music.
