Alba Rosa Viëtor Composition Competition 2018

The Alba Rosa Viëtor Foundation organizes its third Alba Rosa Viëtor Composition Competition

The Alba Rosa Viëtor Composition Competition 2018 invites composers to submit an original work, not exceeding 9 minutes, for one singer (soprano, mezzo-soprano, alto, countertenor, tenor, baritone or bass) and piano trio (violin, violoncello and piano). 

Inspired by Shostakovich’s wonderful and unique Alexander Blok suite, we would like to encourage young composers to write for this combination of voice and instruments.
Composers 35 years of age and under, residing anywhere in the world, are invited to apply.
Chairman of the Jury is Dutch composer Willem Jeths. He will be assisted by the English composer Tansy Davies, Italian pianist and composer Paolo Marzocchi, German composer Manfred Trojahn and Greek composer Calliope Tsoupaki.
The Competition is part of the Alba Rosa Viva! Festival, named after the Italian composer, violinist and pianist Alba Rosa Viëtor
Five works will be selected to be premiered on SundayDecember 2nd2018, during the Festival at The ConcertgebouwAmsterdam (The Netherlands). They will be performed by talented young musicians.
