CompositionToday Interviews

The results of our second workshop for composers are now available online. In Autumn 2005 we put out a call for pieces, and last week leading UK violinist Susanne Stanzeleit came and recorded no less than 13 pieces which you can now view and listen to online. Each page has a comments form at the bottom, and we'd love to get feedback from the composers themselves and other CT members.

We are hoping to do more workshops in the near future. If you have any requests for a particular instrument please post a message in the forum

C:T: talks to Rarescale, a UK group dedicated to promoting new music for the alto flute.

The deadline has now past for our Violin Workshop. We've again had an excellent response and will be recording the workshop with Susanne later in the month. The results should be available online towards the end of March. We'll try to get through as many as we can...

We are delighted to announce that the violinist for the March Composition:Today violin workshop recordings is Susanne Stanzeleit. Susanne is one of the leading violinists of her generation and has performed worldwide as a soloist and chamber musician. She is well known for her unusually challenging and extensive repertoire, featuring many commissions and UK premieres of works by composers such as John Adams, Lou Harrison, Gyorgy Kurtag, John Woolrich, Philip Cashian, Rebecca Saunders etc.

The deadline for submissions to the workshop is the end of February, so don't miss out! (You don't have to be a member of C:T to submit, but priority will be given to scores from C:T members.

C:T talks to Ian Wilson, one of the rising stars of Irish contemporary music. Ian runs the Sligo New Music Festival and has just signed a new publishing deal with Ricordi.

C:T talks to tenor Gregory Wiest, who collects and performs programs of modern American and English songs.

We're looking for composers to write short extracts for Violin in our unique online workshop - find out more.

We're delighted to be able to offer C:T readers some of Daniel Jaffé's excellent articles on leading composers. Composers interviewed are: Oliver Knussen, James Macmillan, Jonathan Harvey, Alexander Goehr, and Diana Burrell.

Each one a fascinating read.
