European Embassies in Washington, DC and The Phillips Collection joined forces to create an unprecedented concert series in 2009: Leading European Composers. Presenting some of the greatest living composers of our time, this unique series presents works by living composers performed by the musicians they select. Leading European Composers provides an exclusive opportunity to get a comprehensive perspective on the state of musical creation in Europe. Past composers have included such luminaries as Olli Kortekangas, Erkki-Sven Tüür, Miroslav Srnka, Michel van der Aa, Kaija Saariaho, and Matthias Pintscher. The 2015/2016 season includes Israeli composer Avner Dorman and Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir.

Leading International Composers concerts begin on Thursdays at 6:30 pm.
