Limited Edition Vinyl Release
A very special new recording
To celebrate the 80th Birthday of Psappha's Patron, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, we released a brand new limited edition recording of Eight Songs for a Mad King on vinyl.
The recording was made in 2012 and was supervised by the composer. This is the first recording of the work to have had the direct involvement of the composer since the 1971 recording by The Fires of London.
Composing for Violin
New films mark the culmination of scheme
Five composers were selected to work with Psappha's violinst Benedict Holland over a 5 month period with each composer working closely with Ben to both develop the new works and to learn more about writing for the violin.

We will be releasing details of additional schemes in the coming months so please check back!
Composition Lab Update
New Content and Mobile Device Integration
Through the support of a generous grant from the Ernest Cook Trust, we will be developing a new area of Composition Lab that will introduce Key Stage 2 children (7 to 11 years) to new music.
The current content of the Lab is now available to view through mobile devices.
YouTube Channel Upgrade
New Films and YouTube
Following your feedback we have made major changes to our YouTube Channel. We think this could be the largest film based resource for music of 20th & 21st Century (unless you can tell us otherwise!). It will includes everything from our website together with many new films.
Everything is categorised through the use of YouTube's 'Playlists' so you will be able to locate specific composers more easily.
