Divertimento Ensemble and its artistic director Sandro Gorli are pleased to announce the second edition of the ‘Franco Donatoni’ International Meeting for Young Composers, which will be held in Monza and in Milan in the first two weeks of June 2011.
Applications to take part in the Meeting can be submitted by composers born after 1 January 1975; nationals of any country can apply by sending one or more scores for an ensemble of between 5 and 12 musicians, to be received by 20 January 2010. By 15 February 2010 an international jury of five composers will select three compositions to be performed in Milan during the Rondò 2010 season.
The three composers will be then commissioned to create a chamber composition (of up to three singers and twelve musicians) of between 20 and 30 minutes in length. The three original works will be performed during the second edition of the ‘Franco Donatoni’ International Meeting for Young Composers, as part of the Rondò 2011 season.
The selected composers will be hosted in Monza for the entire period of the rehearsals and will work in close contact with the musicians of the Divertimento Ensemble.
DEADLINE: 20 JANUARY 2010
