The world´s first Agency for New Orchestral Music
nomus21 presents new orchestral music in all its diversity. With passion nomus21 seeks out symphonic music from all over the world that will inspire orchestras and audiences alike. nomus21 presents those discoveries as an online experience and distributes performance materials and scores for these works. The agency also advises orchestras and curators on selecting new works by living composers, with the aim of re-establishing contemporary symphonic creations as a natural part of the concert repertoire.
Making Music Heard
As a conductor, every day I am confronted with the fact that music from living composers is missing from the concert programs of our orchestras. Fascinating works remain unplayed, wonderful sounds go unheard and the repetition of a limited repertoire leaves the orchestra's and the audience's hunger for new, profound musical experiences unsatisfied. After centuries of growth and development, our orchestral culture is gradually becoming little more than a museum showcase. With nomus21, I wish to encourage orchestras, curators and audiences to open themselves to the power and sensuality of new orchestral music. My aim is to expand the repertoire of our orchestras and to inspire composers to once again focus their creativity and imagination on the symphonic timbres of large ensembles – to help ensure a vibrant future for our orchestras.
