Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg, Österreich
With the support of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg has, since 2008, issued commissions for new compositions that are specially written for performances of youth orchestras alongside professional orchestras. The works are written by internationally recognized composers (such as Kurt Schwertsik and Toshio Hosokawa).
Since 2008 the compositions have been premiered every two years in Salzburg after which the score can then be ordered from the publishing company and used by youth and professional orchestras worldwide. On November 3rd 2010 the 2-Orchestra project will be restaged at the festival hall Festspielhaus Salzburg – this time featuring a premiere of Toshio Hosokawa’s work for the Salzburg Youth Orchestra and the Mozarteum Orchestra.
