We are very happy to share the news of performances of Philip Cashian music during this month. It has been challenging to the music community with cancellations of concerts all over the world. Given this, it is inspiring to see so many creative initiatives arising to keep live music sounding even during these hard times.
Living Room Live is one of those projects which has been promoting the stream of concerts from the living room of world class musicians through their website and Facebook live.
On Friday 12 June Living Room Live features George X. Fu performing Philip Cashian’s solo piano piece Short Stories, among other works.
Short Stories has been composed for the Royal Academy of Music 200 Pieces Project. As part of Royal Academy of Music’s bicentenary celebrations, 200 composers from all over the world have been invited to write a solo piece for any instrument or voice. All 200 pieces are being premiered and recorded by RAM students from earlier this year to 2022. In 2022 all 200 pieces be available together on a dedicated website.
The idea is to create a unique repertoire of solo works for these brilliant young musicians who have a real thirst for contemporary music.Philip Cashian

We’re also very pleased to announce a new commission for Cashian from the Riot Ensemble. A House of Rumour is for 7 instruments and will be premiered on 15 January 2021 in the Riot Ensemble’s newly established concert series at Kings Place.
Composers Edition is proud to celebrate Philip Cashian’s music and present a range of his works available for perusal and purchase through our website.
