Welcome to Resonate, a joint initiative between the Association of British Orchestras and the PRS Foundation with funding from The Foyle Foundation.

Resonate celebrates the wealth of music commissioned and premiered by British orchestras from UK-based composers. Providing the first comprehensive overview of a generation’s worth of new music, Resonate is an open resource that provides details of new works going back 25 years. Alongside instrumentation, duration and other basic information, where possible the site is rich with additional material including soundclips, videos, programme notes and links to view the score.

In addition, the PRS Foundation have funding available to support performances of contemporary orchestral repertoire from this database. UK based orchestras are invited to review the funding criteria on the PRS Foundation website and submit applications before publicised deadlines. Successful applicants will receive grants of up to £10,000 towards the cost of mounting concerts including works from the Resonate database.

We hope you enjoy discovering and exploring the works listed here.
