>>Project Prize "NEW FORMATS" - Competition in Competition<<
The essential feature of this competition is the juxtaposition of modern and traditional music. Right from the start, it was about bringing Schubert's chamber music into relation with new and newest works for suitable ensembles. The expansion of the chamber music repertoire is actively pursued with composition competitions and commissioned works.
As part of the repertoire, the participants are invited to rehearse compulsory pieces - one of the prizewinning works of the International Composition Competition Lied Duo*, which was advertised in advance of the FS&MM by the University of Music and Performing Arts. Those will be sent to the participants after the registration deadline. In addition, a commissioned work by a renowned composer - this time Judith Weir could be won over for the composition commission - is to be rehearsed for the final round. The scores will be handed over to the participants in the final after the semi-finals.
* Prizewinning works of the International Composition Competition Lied Duo 2020: Luciano Correa Barraza with "Vértigo" and Gianluca Iadema with "Wirbel".
