Composition Commission issued to Sven-Ingo Koch
As an institute devoted to one sole composer, contemporary composition is a matter very close to the heart of the Beethoven-Haus Bonn and, in particular, to the management of its Chamber Music Hall. To mark the 20th anniversary of this Chamber Music Hall the Beethoven-Haus Bonn has issued a composition commission for string quartet to Ferneyhough student Sven-Ingo Koch with the support of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation. Playing a key role in selecting the composers the Auryn Quartet will take the commission piece into their repertoire after its debut performance.
