New Works

Commissions take us on journeys that can challenge the way we listen to music. They pave the way for future music makers, whether instrumentalists, composers or appreciators. 

Each year the ACO invests in bringing new works to life from emerging and established composers both here and abroad. We have recently commissioned new works from Australian composers Elena Kats-Chernin, Paul Stanhope, Harry Sdraulig, and Holly Harrison, and over the years have commissioned new music from diverse international composers including Nico Muhly, Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead), Missy Mazzoli and Sam Adams. This investment allows talented young artists to viably pursue composition and bring new and exciting orchestral music to life, and is only made possible through support from patrons like you.
