CoMA Open Score 2014 Concerto
Artistic Director and Soloist ROLF HIND
CoMA has secured a fantastic opportunity for composers to write a work for Solo Piano & Ensemble, and to have their pieces workshopped and performed by the internationally acclaimed pianist Rolf Hind.
Short-listed works will be workshopped by the Open Score Ensemble at the CoMA Summer School 2014, and at least one selected work will receive a further public performance, with Rolf Hind as soloist.
All composers will receive feedback on their pieces from the selection panel, and all works submitted will be considered for inclusion in the CoMA Repertoire Library. CoMA intends to promote successful pieces with a view to further performances by other pianists and other ensembles.
To take part, and to receive the full specification, guidelines and application form, register your interest by contacting CoMA (Contemporary Music for All) at email@example.com, or write to: CoMA Concerto, Rich Mix, 35 – 47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA. Rolf Hind
Born in London and now living there after studies at the Royal College of Music and in Los Angeles, Rolf Hind's career has many facets. He appears regularly at new music festivals throughout Europe. He is in demand as a soloist with all the major BBC orchestras and plays regularly with the London Sinfonietta. As a performer he has had a number of concertos written specially for him.
Rolf's compositions are largely inspired by his repeated trips to India and a subsequent fascination with the culture and language. Since then, most of his works have sprung from that source, including “The Horse Sacrifice”, for six instrumentalists, “The City of Love” (a setting of Hindi texts) for voice, cello and piano, “Your Black Mouth”, for clarinet and harp, and “Sunnata” for six keyboards. In 2008 he premiered his piano concerto "Maya-Sesha" with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Rolf is also inspired by working with players at the cutting edge of instrumental technique and innovation.
