Using the unpredictable events of COVID-19 as a stimulus for creativity, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group commissioned a series of new music pieces from composers around the globe during lockdown.


Birmingham Contemporary Music Group composers were asked to create pieces for solo artists and were connected with musicians over digital platforms to rehearse, refine, and record their music. Soliloquies and Dialogues shows the importance of connectivity and creativity during the most devastating of times, and that whilst we were all unified by lockdown, our reactions were still highly individual.

On the path out of a live performance drought we are delighted to be sharing these new pieces with you during two world premiere performances at Arnolfini on 11 June and CBSO Centre in Birmingham on 15 June –

Experience contemporary music for a new creative era, and BCMG’s new partnership with Arnolfini. This will be a poignant celebration of new things to come, and a reflection of the journey we have all taken together, yet on our own.
