‘Down Fifth Avenue’ for solo violin was commissioned as one of the 200 new works

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, will be available on Monday 19 December 2022, creating a new library of varied contemporary works by many of the world’s leading composers.

Premiered at the Royal Academy of Music, London, on the 20th of October 2020, the piece is dedicated, with warm affection, to Simon Bainbridge, on the ocassion of his 68th birthday, and was written during August 2020 in Massarrojos (València) and Madrid.

Check the score and recording at the Royal Academy’s website from Monday, 19th of December: HERE.
