The SPNM 1943-1975: a retrospective

December 2013
Musical Times;Winter2013, Vol. 154 Issue 1925, p47
The article focuses on the Society For the Promotion of New Music's (SPNM) policies, principles, and ideologies, as well as its influence on the careers of composers and new music in post-war Great Britain. The history of the SPNM in 1943 is highlighted. The SPNM also operated as a form of self-help group for composers, since there was little demand for their creations and little opportunity for performance in post-war Britain.
