Help NMC to release Birtwistle, Weir and Barry

Posted by Johannes Feigl on 20 Dezember 2012

NMC RecordingsNMC Recordings are trying to release Harrison Birtwistle’s Gawain, Judith Weir’s The Vanishing Bridegroom and Gerald Barry’s The Importance of Being Earnest in 2014/15.

Here is what they have to say: Of all contemporary music, opera is perhaps the genre that epitomises NMC’s unique role in promoting British composition at its most innovative. The financial and artistic risks inherent in new opera, the paucity of repeat runs and the unwillingness of many mainstream record labels to take up this repertoire require NMC to step into the breach and make these works permanently available to a global audience. NMC has recorded over a dozen contemporary British operas to date, and Gawain is perhaps the work that we are most frequently asked to release!

We'd like to support this – find out how you can support NMC.
