Composition Competition 2011

Information Center of Chinese Contemporary Music

The ensemble Beijing Contempo, China’s first ensemble for contemporary music will be holding its 2011 competition with the support of the EvS Music Foundation. The occasion prompting this move is the “Chinese Culture Year in Germany” which the Chinese government has designated for 2012. The competition will invite composition submissions for orchestration by Beijing Contempo i.e. featuring at least one traditional Chinese instrument. The invitation is aimed at up-and-coming German and Chinese composers. Once the compositions have been announced a prizewinners’ concert is planned. The ensemble will then go on a German tour with the prizewinners’ compositions.

March 2011 to July 2012
