Interview: ArtsHub | Composers and commissions: we need to think beyond the premiere

January 2020

But as composers, we need to think about much more than that first night if we are to reach a wider audience, sustain a career and continue to be creative. We need to plan and strategise so that our work can go farther and do more beyond the one-and-done commission.

-Cameron Lam
