Composers Edition

Founded by Dan Goren and launched in 2013, Composers Edition is a unique publishing enterprise, which works to bring composers and performers together, and facilitates and celebrates music making involving contemporary repertoire. 

The Composers Edition team is especially focussed on opening up new music to musicians and programmers who might feel uncertain about what and how to programme or commission new work.

Our roster of more than 80 internationally recognised composers come from all over the world, although many live and work in the UK. From BBC Proms to car park performances, concertos for some of the worlds finest soloists to choral works created especially for community choirs, they are a diverse bunch!
