V10LA: our project is to commission 10 Viola Concertos by 2030.
The first four of these have been written by Gerald Barry (premiered in 2019), Anders Hillborg (premiered in 2021), Cassandra Miller (premiered in 2023), and Magnus Lindberg (to be premiered in 2024).
Please do support our ongoing work to commission further concertos. Since its foundation in 2019, the VCC has commissioned works by Thomas Adès, Gerald Barry, Garth Knox, Thomas Larcher, Olli Mustonen, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Erkki-Sven Tüür, Huw Watkins, and Héloise Werner.
Some of these works have already been taken up by a future generation of violists and programmed internationally.
