The results of our second workshop for composers are now available online
. In Autumn 2005 we put out a call for pieces, and last week leading UK violinist Susanne Stanzeleit came and recorded no less than 13 pieces which you can now view and listen to online. Each page has a comments form at the bottom, and we'd love to get feedback from the composers themselves and other CT members.
We are hoping to do more workshops in the near future. If you have any requests for a particular instrument please post a message in the forum
The deadline has now past for our Violin Workshop
. We've again had an excellent response and will be recording the workshop with Susanne later in the month. The results should be available online towards the end of March. We'll try to get through as many as we can...
We are delighted to announce that the violinist for the March Composition:Today violin workshop recordings
