THE JOSEPH DORFMAN MEMORIAL COMPOSER'S COMPETITION
All ISAM participating composers are invited to partake in an international competition annually. This competition is intended to increase the excitement, energy, and creativity among our hand-picked young and talented composers, while at the same time generate a harvest of new, beautiful, and highly artistic works. The competition carries the name and blessed memory of ISAM co-founder, composer, pianist, musicologist, teacher, and visionary leader, professor Joseph Dorfman (1940-2006.). Winning compositions will be repeated at the Gala Concert and prize giving ceremony.This years theme-motive is typical of A. Ginastera's musical language.
