Composer Jay Capperauld (Class of 2012) is to have his work premiered by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, alongside James MacMillan’s Symphony No.4.

His piece, Inertia of a Bona Fide Psychopath, will be premiered on December 11, during a studio recording for BBC Radio 3.

Capperauld is thrilled to hear his work performed by the BBC Philharmonic. “I wrote this piece while studying at the Royal Conservatoire, and it won me the Craig Armstrong Prize for Composition in my final year of the Masters course; but it has never been performed live until now.”
