2022 Call for Scores

2022 Call for Scores

Two composers will be commissioned to write new pieces for Riot Ensemble.

The first composer will write a 5-8’ quartet for flute, clarinet, violin, and cello (with or without electronics) to be premiered at Tzlil Meudcan in July 2022. The commission fee for this work will be £750.

The second composer will write a 10-15’ ensemble work for the October 2022 concert at Kings Place. The composer will select a lineup of up to twelve musicians (with or without electronics) drawn from David Del Tredici’s Syzygy. The commission fee for this work will be £1500 - with an additional fund of up to £500 available to offset travel costs - and the premiere will take place in London on 14 October 2022.

Any composer not currently represented on the Ensemble's 2022 Season is eligible to apply.

Application

Using the online form, please submit:

  • Your name, country of residence, e-mail address, and (optionally) your pronouns.

  • PDF files of two scores. These pieces may be for any instrumentation and written at any point in your life/career.

  • Links to recordings of these pieces if possible. Recordings are not mandatory. Of course, they are helpful, but our musicians are fluent score readers and we have commissioned composers in the past who have not submitted a recording.

All entries must be received by 11:59 GMT on Monday, 27 December 2021. The commissions will be announced on 31 January 2022. No entry fee special for this year.

Please visit their website for more information.
