Call for Compositions

  • Composers Competition

For this workshop with the first international Nyckelharpa Orchestra the Scuola di Musica Popolare di Forlimpopoli announces an non-endowed composers competition. Composers can participate in the competition with short compositions or arrangements (duration between 2 and 6 minutes). The compositions should contain elements of European traditional music. The compositions must be written specifically for the ENCORE project and not have been recorded or performed in public before.

  • Nyckelharpa - Symbols and Notation

by Jule Bauer and Marco Ambrosini
