Open Call for Scores | Tongyeong Asian Composers Showcase 2019
Since 3 September until 11 November, Tongyeong International Music Foundation, together with the Goethe-Institut, invite composers from North East Asia to take part in an open call for scores for the 2019 Tongyeong Asian Composers Showcase.
From the entries, an international jury will select four laureates whose pieces will be performed at the Tongyeong International Music Festival (TIMF) in April 2019, a platform for arts and cultural exchanges, learning and networking. On the basis of the performances, one of the composers will be given the Goethe Award, endowed with 2,000 EUR, and receive a composition commission for the following year’s festival, amounting to an additional 5,000 EUR.
The Asian Composers Showcase was launched in 2013 by the Goethe-Institut together with the Tongyeong International Music Festival to promote the composition of New Music in North East Asia. For six years now, a total of twenty-five musical compositions by promising young composers have been premiered at the TIMF.
