Composition commission issued to Vinko Globokar, Fabio Nieder and Daria Andovska for "Pisma u domovinu - Briefe in die Heimat"
Institut für neue Musik an der Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover, Germany
A project planned to last several years “Pisma u domovinu – Briefe in die Heimat” (Letters Home) aims to foster artistic exchange between Slovenia, Serbia, Montenegro and Germany. The Slovenian ensemble MD7 along with Germany’s ensemble ur.werk will elaborate a program here presenting the contemporary music of the countries of former Yugoslavia and of Germany. Both ensembles will perform these programs in concerts at the first Festival for contemporary art forms in Cetinje, Montenegro, at the International Tribune of Composers in Belgrade as well as in Hanover and Stadthagen. In addition to the concerts composer discussions and workshops will be offered with the ensembles at each of the music academies. Introductions to the concerts are public. With the support of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation composition commissions have been issued to Vinko Globokar (Slovenia), Daria Andovska (Macedonia) and Fabio Nieder (Italy/Germany). To promote up-and-coming talents a composition competition for chamber music will also be held at the music academies in Germany, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Macedonia, Slovenia and Bosnia Herzegovina.
