Sorodha is proud to announce the fifth edition of its annual composition competition.|
For this festive edition, we welcome compositions for string quartet and have the utmost pleasure to be able to work with the Tana String Quartet on this occasion. Their leader, Antoine Maisonhaute, was one of our judges last year, and this year they all join us as performers.
The submission deadline is Monday 29th of February 2016, and the entry fee is 10,00.
The jury will select five works, which will be executed at a public concert on Saturday 23rd of April 2016 by the Tana String Quartet, after which the jury will award two prizes ( 1,000.00 and 500.00).
The winning piece will be performed by the Tana String Quartet at the Académie du Festival d'Aix-en-Provence on the 20th of July, 2016 (details forthcoming).
Please keep following checklist in mind before sending us your score:
is your work written for string quartet (2 violins, viola, cello; no electronics, either)?
was it originally written for string quartet?
has is not been performed, broadcasted or prized in another competition before?
is your score anonymous?
will we be able to tell it apart from the others based on the title only? Ok, then; otherwise please add a motto, code or other distinctive sign.
is it formatted as PDF file and A4 pages?
does your second PDF file contain all the necessary data?
has the entry fee been paid by PayPal (an extra 1 will be charged to cover the transfer costs)?
have you checked the time zone if filing on the last day before the deadline from elsewhere than Western Europe?
