Inspired by the book Sound Within Sound by journalist and BBC Radio 3 broadcaster Kate Molleson, this event series spotlights the lives and works of ten composers from the 20th century whose work has been overlooked in the main classical canon.

From Mexico to New Zealand, these visionaries have pushed the boundaries of classical music, introducing microtonal revolutions, incorporating indigenous sounds, and even turning entire cities into orchestras.

This July embark on a journey of discovery across the globe at the Southbank Centre through sensational works that have been relegated to the shadows for too long.

Over four days there are performances taking place across Southbank Centre’s auditoriums and public spaces, as well as immersive sound installations that invite you to experience the music of these pioneering composers like never before.

Whether you’re a seasoned classical fan or just dipping a bow into classical music, the Sound Within Sound is for everyone to enjoy. The lineup for the festival is an eclectic mix of solo, chamber and orchestral performances, as well as plenty of free events including immersive sound installations and DJ sets courtesy of the brilliant record label nonclassical.
