OPPORTUNITY FOR COMPOSERS TO HAVE THEIR WORK WORKSHOPPED BY THE LIGETI QUARTET

We are pleased to announce that, alongside their performance in Belgrave Music Hall, Ligeti Quartet will be in residence with us on Friday 13 March 2020 to workshop compositions for string quartet. Selected works will be played through followed by discussion. We are accepting submissions of full pieces, movements or excerpts of up to six minutes in duration which are scored for string quartet. You may submit works which include tape parts or electronics, but please bear in mind practical considerations for setting up and rehearsing the work. Sounds Like THIS Festival will work with the Ligeti Quartet to select up to eight works to be workshopped across the day.

 

WE ARE OPEN

We actively encourage applications from black and minority ethnic artists

We actively encourage applications from artists with disabilities

We are a PRS Foundation Keychange associate festival committed to 50:50 gender-balanced programming

 

HOW TO APPLY

SCORE

Please submit a PDF of your work, movement or excerpt that is no longer than six minutes. Shorter durations are welcome. Scores should be formatted in portrait orientation (preferably) unless the music particularly calls for being presented in landscape. Note that parts will not be required as the Quartet plays from score on A4-sized iPads (page turns should be managed helpfully, but do not need time/non-playing bars to execute).

 

ACCOMPANYING DOCUMENTS

A short programme note up (300 words or less)

A practical description of the aims, methods and techniques employed in the work (300 words or less)

A short composer biography (300 words or less)

Your submission will be used in a programme published for use across the workshop day.

 

APPLY HERE

Please upload your submission to us here. Please note you cannot save the form for later, so please ensure you have all your files ready for submission before completing the form.

 

DEADLINE

The deadline for submissions is 5:00PM on Thursday 23 January 2020.
