Royal Academy of Music: 200

As part of its Bicentenary celebrations, the Royal Academy of Music embarked on an ambitious project, inviting 200 composers to write 200 new works for solo instrument or voice. 

The recordings and scores for these works, written for every principal study instrument taught at the Academy, are now available, creating a new library of varied contemporary works by many of the world’s leading composers. Bethan contributed a short piece for solo trumpet – Shivaree – which was premiered by Lucy Humphris at the Academy in March 2022.

200 Pieces is live on the Royal Academy of Music’s website. You can access the full collection here:
