26 CE Composers at Royal Academy of Music ‘200 Pieces’ Bicentenary Celebrations Project

In 2022 the Royal Academy of Music will celebrate its Bicentenary. George Chambers, Head of Communications and External Relations at the Royal Academy of Music tells us more about their plans:

Philip Cashian

Celebrations have already begun with its monumental ‘200 Pieces’ project, with the Academy asking 200 composers to write 200 new works for solo instrument or voice. Composers include Academy alumni, staff, students and honorands, as well as friends and associates, all chosen by the Academy’s Head of Composition Philip Cashian.

All the works were due to be premiered live at the Academy between 2020-22 and the first few pieces received their premiere earlier this year. Unfortunately plans had to be paused as the Academy closed its doors due to the COVID-19 crisis. Instead many of the pieces are being recorded and will have online premieres on the Academy’s social media channels.

All recordings and the majority of the 200 Pieces scores will be made available as a free resource on the Academy’s new website in 2022.
