"New music is vital, not just to musicians and audiences, but for the ongoing development of our extraordinary and uniquely blossoming UK culture. Let's try and make sure we maintain the world leading status we have for this rather than let it be another casualty of a previously ambitious and far-sighted country."
Graham Fitkin, composer
