Fraud Blocker

Royal College of Music composers create new works inspired by a selection of evocative images from the Head On Landscape Awards and Head On Portrait Awards.

This unique concert features a series of short works for solo, duo and trio ensembles alongside the striking images that inspired them.

Every piece not only responded to the Head On Photo Award images, but also illuminated a new way of viewing them. Congratulations to all of the artists whose work inspired composers from the Royal College of Music, London:
