CoMA has secured a fantastic opportunity for composers to write a work for solo cello and ensemble, and to have selected pieces workshopped and performed by the internationally acclaimed cellist Robin Michael.
Robin Michael has been much in demand as soloist and chamber musician. He is principal cello of the Orchestra Revolutionnaire et Romantique and regular guest principal in several other orchestras including the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Robin is the cellist in the Fidelio trio with whom he has toured Europe, Asia and South Africa. He also appears regularly with chamber groups such as the Dante Quartet and Eroica Quartet.
Works must be for a solo celloist (of conservatoire standard - a semi-professional or very good amateur player) accompanied by an amateur four-part instrumental ensemble of flexible size and instrumentation, plus optionally one keyboard player and/or one percussion player.The ensemble parts must be within the capabilities of good amateur players. Works should be 5 to 8 minutes in duration.
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. Short-listed works will be workshopped at the CoMA Summer School in 2013, and at least one of those selected will receive a public performance, with Robin as soloist accompanied by the CoMA Open Score Ensemble.
Deadline for submission of scores: FRIDAY 31st MAY 2013. Click here for an Entry Form
