Young Composers’ Forum

Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts, Munich, Germany

At the initiative of and in collaboration with the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts set up the Young Composers’ Forum (Forum junger Komponisten), that is now to be continued for a further three years. As part of this forum one young composer is in each instance to be introduced alongside a composition commission. The selected artist here, serving as the curator of each concert, will also elaborate the supporting program featuring music from 20th and 21st century together with the music department of the academy. Every two concerts either the academy’s music department or the named composer will, in collaboration with the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, determine who will receive the next composition commission and artistically coordinate the concert premiere. The project serves as a way to both promote young talents and extend the repertoire of contemporary music.
