impuls promotes and supports young composers not only within its Academy, but also through the impuls Composition Competition.
impuls commissions up to 6 new works for ensemble every second year from young composers selected by a jury. Subsequently these composers are invited to take part in the impuls Composition Workshop in Vienna and Graz – where their new works are collectively rehearsed and discussed extensively with musicians of world-class ensembles such as Klangforum Wien – as well as to the premiere of their new pieces within the impuls Academy and Festival in Graz.
impuls also intends to support the composers´ works beyond that through recordings respectively broadcasting and additional concerts.
The current call runs from May 31st to October 31st, 2016.
