Call For Scores: For Ensembles & Composers Exchange Project
The Austrian Section of the International Society for Contemporary Music, in partnership with the Slovenian Cultural and Information Centre in Vienna, has launched a call for contemporary music works. The call is open to young composers up to 35 years of age and the selected works will be performed in the autumn as part of the Vienna Modern Festival and the Ljubljana New Music Forum.
About the project
The focus of the project is the artistic exchange between Slovenian and Austrian composers as well as international composers living in Austria and Slovenia of younger generation. Two young ensembles from both countries are invited to take part in the project – between feathers (AT) and Trio Tempestoso (SI). The project aims to promote young talents and strengthen intercultural dialogue.

flute, clarinet, percussion, 2 x accordion, voice, violoncello
