Alba Rosa Viëtor

APPLY NOW FOR THE ALBA ROSA VIETOR COMPOSITION COMPETITION

The Alba Rosa Viëtor Foundation organizes its third Alba Rosa Viëtor Composition Competition. The Competition is part of the Alba Rosa Viva! Festival, named after the Italian composer, violinist and pianist Alba Rosa Viëtor.
The Alba Rosa Viëtor Composition Competition 2018 invites composers to submit an original work, not exceeding 9 minutes, for one singer (soprano, mezzo-soprano, alto, countertenor, tenor, baritone or bass) and piano trio (violin, violoncello and piano). Inspired by Shostakovich’s wonderful and unique Alexander Blok suite, we would like to encourage young composers to write for this combination of voice and instruments. Composers 35 years of age and under, residing anywhere in the world, are invited to apply.
Chairman of the Jury is Dutch composer Willem Jeths. He will be assisted by the English composer Tansy Davies, Italian pianist and composer Paolo Marzocchi, German composer Detlev Glanert and Greek composer Calliope Tsoupaki.
Five works will be selected to be premiered on Sunday, December 2nd, 2018, during the Alba Rosa Viva! Festival at The Concertgebouw, Amsterdam (The Netherlands). They will be performed by talented young musicians. The winning composers will be awarded a First prize of €2,000, a Second Prize of €1,000 or an Audience Prize of €1,000.
The application deadline is July 1st, 2018.
