Betreff: RENINDERR Ausschreibung Weltmusiktage 2019 in Estland

Liebe Mitglieder und Freunde der GNM

Die ersten Einreichungen haben uns inzwischen erreicht – vielen Dank dafür – der Rücklauf könnte aber durchaus noch größer sein, Aus diesem Grund schicke ich Ihne/Euch noch einmal die Aufforderung, werke für die Weltmusiktage in Estland einzureichen. – Es ist noch bis Sonntagabend Zeit, seine Unterlagen mittels einer Dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/de/) oder dergleichen hochzuladen und dann den Link an olbrisch@ignm-deutschland.de und info@ignm-deutschland.de zu schicken.

Insbesondere möchten wir Komponist*innen unter 35 Jahren zur Teilnahme auffordern (bzw. alle anderen, diese Mail an Junge Komponist*innen weiter zu leiten), da es hier auch noch den „Young Composer Award“ (siehe auch: https://www.iscm.org/activities/ycawards) gibt, bei dem es doch schön wäre, wenn dieses Jahr wieder ein deutscher Beitrag teilnehmen könnte.

Viele Grüße

Mathias Lehmann

ISCM WMD in Estonia aims to introduce contemporary music and the extremely diverse forms of its manifestation. The festival mainly focuses on choral music in its various expressions of genre and style. On the other hand, the festival concentrates on experiments between music and other artistic disciplines, including the intersections between music and architecture, theatre, audiovisual art, and literature. Therefore, we are inviting composers and sections to propose musical works dealing with the abovementioned themes while reflecting contemporary music in as rich and extensive spectrum as possible.
We would like to encourage young composers to apply, because of the ISCM Young Composer’s Award, supported by Music on Main, which in 2019 will award 5000€ to a composer aged 35 or younger whose work is performed at the festival. The 5000€ prize includes a commission for a new piece that will be performed during a future edition of the ISCM World Music Days.
