OPEN CALL FOR THE 11TH COMPETITION !


The Swiss organization pre-art announces its 11th consecutive call for scores by composers of the nations in which it has been active over the last 18 years. The organization’s aim consists in finding young composers in order to promote them in an international context. By this we hope to support the exchange within southeastern Europe, the Caucasian and Central Asian region and Switzerland and thereby to overcome regional and national differences.

flute*, oboe*, saxophone*, cello, double bass (5-strings), concert accordion, and piano.
The pieces might NOT be conducted.

*possible doubling instruments: piccolo, alto flute in G; Cor Anglais; Soprano, Alto or Tenor saxophone
