Celebrating classical composers from diverse ethnic backgrounds

AHRC are inviting expressions of interest from arts and humanities researchers from all disciplines specialising in, or with interests in, Black, Asian and ethnically diverse classical music composers. Applicants are permitted to submit up to two composers, but separate expressions of interest must be submitted for each.

Expressions of interest will be assessed by a panel and a shortlist of researchers will be invited to participate in an AHRC/BBC workshop in January 2021 to explore ideas that will help shape the project and feed into BBC programming.

We are particularly interested in receiving applications from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse researchers who are currently under-represented within academia and on BBC Radio 3. This scheme aims to encourage greater inclusion and ensure researchers feel empowered to apply.

Expressions of interest must focus on a single historical composer (that is, deceased), who can be from any part of the world. They must have written orchestral, chamber and/or choral music so that BBC orchestras, choirs and new generation artists can then perform and record their work for broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Given the resources available of the BBC performance groups, we’re specifically looking to record music written predominantly for western instruments.

Expressions of interest are welcomed from:

  • arts and humanities researchers from all disciplines specialising in, or with interests in, Black, Asian and ethnically diverse classical music composers
  • researchers at all stages of their careers, including doctoral students and early career researchers.
