    Impact: Cultural impacts

    Description of impact

    New editions created by members of the French Music Research Hub at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (RBC) have had international impact on cultural life by enabling 21 performances by 5 leading ensembles in 11 venues across 5 countries. They include a Messiaen world premiere, a modern-day Rameau premiere and significant new realizations of other works by Clérambault and Rameau, providing valuable status events for renowned performers and Arts organizations (e.g. BBC Proms, Oper Komische Berlin, Versailles, Theater an der Wien and Utrecht Early Music Festival). These previously unheard and radically revised works attracted 22 radio broadcasts in 12 countries and a global audience through the BBC World Service.
