On the initiative of and in collaboration with the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation Bavaria’s fine art academy Bayerische Akademie der Schönen Künste has called the new series Forum junger Komponisten (Young Composers’ Forum) into being. The forum will award composition commissions to young composers under 35. Acting as curator the artist selected is to then also study the supporting program for the debut performance along with music of the 20th and 21st centuries doing so in consultation with the music department of the academy. On the selection procedure: In a series of two concerts, first the music department then the named composer decides who should receive the next composition commission and who should artistically coordinate the concert to be premiered, all in consultation with the Siemens Music Foundation. Planned as an on-going project this is aimed not just at promoting up-and-coming new talent but also demonstrating an as broad as possible compositional spectrum.
