Colchester New Music is pleased to announce a call for scores for harpsichord duet, to be performed by the Knights-Tidhar harpsichord duo in Colchester in Spring 2018. All works submitted must be original, and not exceeding 7 minutes in length. There are no stylistic limitations.

Francis Knights and Dan Tidhar (http://harpsichordduo.webnode.com) are the world’s busiest early keyboard duo, giving many performances each year of repertoire which ranges from the Renaissance to the present day. They are actively seeking to expand the small contemporary repertoire for two harpsichords.

For the harpsichords, assume one double-manual instrument of FF-f3 compass with 2 x 8′, 1 x 4’ stops, and one single-manual instrument of GG-d3, 2 x 8′; they will match in tone and volume. Many recordings of modern harpsichord styles can be found on YouTube, and http://www.christopherlewis.net is also worth a visit. For technical queries, please contact calls@colchesternewmusic.com.

Submissions will be judged anonymously by the performers and an external judge; scores must be submitted in pdf format, and the composer’s name must not appear anywhere on the score. All submissions must be accompanied by a completed application form.

Composers may submit up to three pieces – Entry fee is £3 for one, £5 for two or £7 for three pieces, or free for CNM members, students and under 25s (note: proof of age/studentship will be required).

Scores and application forms should be e-mailed to calls@colchesternewmusic.com by 1st December 2017. The application form and payment links can be found at:
