2012-13 Premieres List by Composer

Each summer, Symphony compiles a list of world, U.S., and Canadian premieres scheduled for the upcoming season.

The list includes names of the works, the orchestras premiering them, scheduled premiere dates, conductors, commissioning parties, and soloists. Titles and names not provided by the orchestras in the survey are designated TBA. The list is compiled based on responses to a League of American Orchestras survey and is not meant to be comprehensive.

A go-to source for information on upcoming premieres, the list demonstrates the artistic vitality of orchestras across the continent, and serves as an invaluable tool for press and orchestra professionals alike. Please contact Symphony Assistant Editor Ian VanderMeulen (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) with any questions or concerns regarding the list.
