COMMISSIONS & CONCERTS
The Richard Thomas Foundation was established in 2009 to commission innovative and interesting works of contemporary performance art, and to support an ongoing programme of performances, recordings and exhibitions in London, Berlin, and elsewhere.
Since 2009 the Foundation has commissioned 18 composers; created or supported 16 recordings; supported or promoted over 30 concerts; and provided core funding for 6 performing arts companies. Many of the pieces we have commissioned continue to be performed all over the world, and some have won awards. Over 20,000 people have so far attended concerts to hear music we have helped commission.
The Foundation launched two record labels in late 2015: Junk Ibu for contemporary music releases; and RTF Classical for modern chamber music releases.
