The 5th Mauricio Kagel Composition Competition Announces a Call for Scores
Apr. 01, 2021
Universal Edition announces a call for piano pieces written for children and young adults as part of the 5th Mauricio Kagel Composition Competition. UE seeks works which, although limited in their technical difficulty, remain uncompromising in their artistic aim; pieces written with a contemporary compositional technique which offer the young student insight and new experiences: experiences about oneself and the world in which we live.
Submissions for this competition are being accepted digitally, with a deadline of September 3, 2021. The compositions nominated for the final round will be performed at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna from February 1-4, 2022. The presentations and jury discussions (conducted exclusively in English) will be streamed live on the internet.
Winning scores will be published in cooperation with Universal Edition. To learn more about the competition and to submit your composition, click here.
