Kent Nagano champions major new composition prizeKent Nagano, newly-appointed Music Director of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal has initiated a major new composition prize - the OSM International Composition Prize will launch its first edition during the 2006-2007 season.
To be presented every two years, this competition for orchestral works will be open to composers of all nationalities, aged 40 years and under. Its aim is to encourage and promote musical creation while developing lasting ties between the OSM and the composers of today and, in this way, actively contribute to a renewal of the symphonic repertoire.
The competition will award three prizes
The Olivier Messiaen International Prize for the winning composition
The Promise Prize for the work placing second
The Claude Vivier National Prize for the best Canadian work
