    ISCM Luxembourg Section - Annual Report 2016

    The Luxembourg Society for Contemporary Music has published a series of CDs with symphonic music written by Luxembourg composers. The CDs produced with the “Orchestre Symphonique de Radio-Télé-Luxembourg”, and the “Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg” have long become part of Luxembourg's cultural heritage. Amongst the CDs published to date, the Anthology of Luxembourgish Music, comprising some 22 symphonic works by 16 Luxembourgish composers, makes up the most important part; in addition, there are CDs of chamber music and CDs devoted entirely to a single Luxembourgish composer. Since 2002 the Luxembourg Society for Contemporary Music has realized a production of 12 CDs and 12 DVDs with its ensemble Luxembourg Sinfonietta (covering in all 84 premières) which constitutes another important part within the Editions LGNM.
