Franco Evangelisti International Composition Competition 2020


italian version


Nuova Consonanza announces the XXII edition of the Franco Evangelisti International Composition Competition.

Rules:
Composers of any age and nationality are eligible.

The instrumentation includes:


- 1° flute (doubling bass flute)
- 2° flute (doubling glissando flute / bass flute)
- 1° clarinet (doubling bass clarinet)
-
2° clarinet (doubling alto saxophone / soprano saxophone)

- violin (doubling viola)
- double bass
- piano

This year, the competition is dedicated to compositions that, deviating from the notion of ’closed score’, have the form of ’open’ works, of a nature attributable to the vast territory of random or aleatoric music, composed using one or more of the following formal criteria for the composition:

 

  • Graphic and / or visual writing;
  • Textual or verbal indications;
  • Solutions for specific direction indications;
  • Architectures in random form or in ’open form’;
  • Improvisation guidelines;

 

therefore presenting the possibility, also, of composite works, which may include various types of notation, including - but not exclusively – conventional notation. Particularly interesting for this context will be the consideration, evident in the composition, whereby the author is able to direct the compositional problems in the creation of a piece that involves the interpreters directly in interpretative choices, while maintaining in a defined way a specific compositional approach.
 
The composition may involve the whole ensemble or part of it, in any combination (also solo instrument). Length of the composition must not exceed 10 minutes. Any candidate can compete anonymously with one or more works. It is possible to submit compositions that have already been played, as long as they are unpublished and have not been awarded any prize in other contests.

Competition procedure and prize:

A committee of experts will make a preselection of submitted scores. An international jury, will select three shortlisted scores to be played in the final concert in December 2020, as part of the 57th Festival di Nuova Consonanza. The winner will be proclaimed after the concert. The composition of the jury will be announced on the website www.nuovaconsonanza.it.

The first prize is € 1.000, publication of the score by Edizioni Suvini Zerboni, Milano.

The jury reserves the right not to reward any of the competing scores and not to nominate finalists, to award ex-aequo prizes or to report particularly deserving compositions. The jury’s judgment is unquestionable.
The Italian version of the call will prevail. In case of disputes, the competent forum is that of Rome.
