We are thrilled with the news that Marc Yeats’ timecode-supported polytemporal chamber orchestra composition, the unimportance of events for 22-players has been selected by BBC Radio 3 as one of three works representing the UK at this year’s International Rostrum of Composers / International Music Council in Belgrade. A full list of selected composers from around the world can be found here.
the unimportance of events has been premiered at this year’s Tectonics Glasgow and brilliantly performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
My huge thanks are also due to Ilan Volkov, whose decision to programme my piece at Tectonics Glasgow 21 made inclusion in the Composers Rostrum possible.Marc Yeats
As described in the International Rostrum of Composers website:
“The International Rostrum of Composers (IRC), organised by the International Music Council, is an international forum of representatives of broadcasting organisations who come together for the purpose of exchanging and broadcasting contemporary music. Currently, over 30 national radio networks participate in the Rostrum presenting some 60 works composed within the five years preceding the Rostrum. After the listening sessions, the assembly of delegates selects and recommends the most important works in two categories: general and “young composers”. These and other works will be presented in concerts and broadcast after the Rostrum by the participating and other interested radio stations.
Besides the high number of broadcasts, selected composers in the two categories are offered a commission. For the General Category, IMC commissions a work which will be recorded and broadcast by Radio France while for the Under-30 category, thanks to Swedish Radio, the selected composer benefits from a short-residence program with recording and live broadcast with the Ensemble NEO in Sweden”.
As you can imagine – I’m really excited about this level of exposure among international broadcasters and commissioners. I’m also completely surprised, in the best possible way, about being selected to participate. I didn’t see this coming!!!March Yeats
Our huge congratulations to Marc Yeats! Also, massive congratulations for his recently awarded PhD. Here’s to officially Dr Marc Yeats!
