About

NMC explores the rich offerings of its back catalogue in a new mid-price series called 'New Music Collections'.

Each album introduces different areas of contemporary classical music, with the first four volumes focusing on music written for choir, orchestra, piano and electronics.

These releases, featuring works from emerging and more established composers and performed by world-class ensembles and artists, are a great introduction to New Music from the British Isles from the last 80 or so years.
