Roche Commissions

Meeting Roche Young Commissions 2015 | Rihm

Roche Commissions is a unique and pioneering collaboration among Roche, LUCERNE FESTIVAL, and the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY. Since 2003, Roche has awarded regular commissions for new orchestral works to some of the most talented contemporary composers around the world. Seven composers have been awarded a Roche Commission to date, which results in their compositions being premiered at LUCERNE FESTIVAL in Summer: Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Chen Yi, Hanspeter Kyburz, George Benjamin, Toshio Hosokawa, Matthias Pintscher, and Unsuk Chin. The latest Roche Commissions composer is Olga Neuwirth.
