Cabin com­posers pre­pare for take-off

BBC Music Magazine - - Thefullscore -

Ladies and gen­tle­men, please may we have your at­ten­tion, even if you are a fre­quent flyer. The Bri­tish air­line fly­bmi has launched a com­pe­ti­tion for stu­dents at the Royal Birm­ing­ham Con­ser­va­toire to com­pose a new piece of mu­sic to be played on its planes. The win­ning work, which will be around three min­utes long, will be adopted as the air­line’s o cial mu­sic and will be heard as pas­sen­gers em­bark and leave. In the un­likely event of the piece fea­tur­ing a vi­ola solo, you will find the emer­gency ex­its at the front and rear of the air­cra . We hope you have an en­joy­able flight.
