JMI partners with the International Centre for Suppressed Music (ICSM), a platform for bringing together those working in the field of suppressed music. The aim of the ICSM is to re-examine the work of composers whose careers were affected: to recover music suppressed by totalitarian regimes and later neglected and to restore, publish, perform and record the music.
