The UK's Royal Philharmonic Society is searching for British
chamber music pieces that deserve a second hearing. Its new Encore
project will select twelve works to be performed and broadcast on
BBC Radio 3 in 2011 and 2012. The pieces must have been written by
a living British composer, have had at least one professional
performance, and have not been performed professionally in the UK
A previous Encore project in 2004 resulted in performances of 14 orchestral works by such composers as Diana Burrell, Colin Matthews, Judith Bingham and Steve Martland.
