NMC arose almost more by chance than by design. Imogen Holst and Colin Matthews had set up the Holst Foundation in 1984 with the aim of supporting the work of living composers. A significant concert of contemporary music at the Aldeburgh Festival in 1987, funded entirely by the Foundation, attracted a full house, but was not broadcast and so was heard by only 800 people. This led Colin Matthews to propose that recordings were the ideal way to reach a larger audience. The Holst Foundation has been the major funder of NMC ever since our inception in 1989.

NMC is a unique and indispensable player in the new music world. They operate as a social enterprise with charitable status, providing public benefit through the contribution our work makes to enriching cultural life. NMC’s future – their ability to continue to record and promote the innovative, the challenging, the obscure, the lost – is reliant on securing public funding and the support of trusts and foundations, plus the generous investment of their donors, Friends, and collaborating partners.
