NMC is delighted to launch its Debut Discs project on 11 June which was created, with the generous help of funders, to support emerging British composers, giving them an international platform for their work.

The first three releases in the series focus on the following composers:

and future releases will include works by Helen Grime, Joseph Phibbs, Ben Foskett, Richard Causton and Charlotte Bray. We are also delighted to have the ambassadorial support of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and a fantastic collaboration with BA (Hons) Graphic Design students at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design.
Visit our Debut Discs mini-site for more information about the series and the collaboration with the design students at Central Saint Martins.

In the videos below, Dai Fujikura talks about his love of horror movie soundtracks and being a rebellious child; Huw Watkins tells us about his musical family and the advantages of being a composer-pianist and Sam Hayden explains his transition from rock musician and trumpeter to composer and talks about his admiration for mentor Jonathan Harvey and the artists he works with.
