Kevin Volans is one of the world’s least predictable and most distinctive composers. Early in his career Volans studied in Cologne with Karlheinz Stockhausen and Mauricio Kagel and was previously listed by BBC Music Magazine as one of the 50 most important living composers. Today, Volans’ music is regularly performed by many of the top international orchestras and ensembles.

His first commission for BCMG, the quiet and contemplative The Partenheimer Project, was premiered in 2008 at Birmingham’s Ikon Gallery. His second promises to be a substantial, high-energy and spectacular piece for piano and ensemble. The internationally acclaimed Barry Douglas joins BCMG to premiere Piano Concerto No. 4 – the first Sound Investment premiere of the scheme’s 25th anniversary year.
