Music : New Artists Series

About New Artists Series

The ACF’s New Artists Series is a platform for young performers selected partly on account of their connections with Austria but more importantly because of their outstanding calibre. These are not just gifted young musicians. They are distinctive, special and destined for conspicuous careers.

The series is presented by the distinguished music critic, writer and broadcaster, Michael White, who with the ACF selects the artists on the basis of personal auditions and recommendations.  Each concert includes a recent work by a composer resident in Austria or Britain and is introduced by Michael White in conversation with the artists and when possible composers.
