Details: 8th PRE-ART COMPETITION FOR COMPOSITION 2014
IN SOUTHEASTERN EUROPE

In collaboration with the Convergence New Music Ensemble

The Swiss organization pre-art announces its 8th consecutive call for scores by composers of the nations in which it has been active over the last 15 years. The organization aims at finding young composers in order to promote them in an international context. Through this competition we hope to foster the exchange within southeastern Europe, the Caucasian and Central Asian region and Switzerland, and thereby to overcome regional and national differences.
The competition is open to composers from the following countries: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kirgistan, Kosova, Macedonia, Moldavia, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovenia, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.

Age limit: 30 (born 1984 or later)

We call for an ensemble composition written for a choice of no fewer than 9 of the following instruments: flute (also piccolo), oboe (also cor anglais), clarinet (also bass clarinet), bassoon, trumpet, french horn, trombone, 2 violins, viola, cello, double bass (4-strings), piano. One or two instruments are supposed to be treated as „solo instruments“ within the musical context. The piece will be conducted.

Duration of the composition: 8 to 12 minutes

The composition must not have been performed in any form. Every participant is allowed to apply with one composition only. Former first-prize-winners of the pre-art competition are excluded.
