Rondò 2014 for Young Composers
Divertimento Ensemble, Milan, Italy
Rondò 2014 will feature six different individual activities to be organized and performed by Ensemble Divertimento. Individual project components by Rondò include: international meetings for talented young composers, a composition commission for students of the Italian conservatories, a music lab for children, a conducting course for contemporary music, an applicants’ forum for young performers as well as the invitation of several Composers in Residence. All in all, twelve compositions will be commissioned and five young conductors and 20 performers will be selected for the course and final concerts. These will represent the highpoint of Rondò 2014. Supported by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation this forum has set out not only to support young conductors and performers financially but also to further train them and stimulate them creatively. Furthermore, the young artists are to be guided and introduced to contemporary music.
