Young Euro Classic


Young Euro Classic Day "Alles Klang" and the "Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Hochschulwettbewerb" 2013

Deutscher Freundeskreis europäischer Jugendorchester e.V., Berlin, Germany

July 28, 2013 – the first Sunday of the Young Euro Classic 2013 festival – will see the holding at Berlin’s Konzerthaus am Gendarmenmarkt of the Young Euro Classic Tag "Alles Klang" which is devoted to various forms of musical presentation.
This forum was set up and held for the first time in 2012 and featured nine events spread across the day as well as a choir concert in the evening.
Over the next few years this forum is to be given a sharper thematic profile both in terms of its content and program; festival management wish to set up six concert opportunities for each of the prizewinners of the "Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Hochschulwettbewerb" competition, each lasting 60 minutes. A focal point here will be composition as a total of six composition commissions are to be issued that will be debuted in these six concerts. January 2013 sees the start of the German music academies’ competition Musikwettbewerb der Deutschen Musikhochschulen in a new format: it will be held as a cooperation with these academies’ deans’ conference Rektorenkonferenz der Deutschen Musikhochschulen and the Prussian cultural heritage foundation Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz, until now the sole sponsor of the Berlin Mendelssohn competition.
Content will focus squarely on the topic of contemporary music; this means all participants are required to study new musical works and then perform these in the concerts. The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation is supporting these 'new' composition commissions that will be issued beforehand as soon as the competition is concluded to the best six composers from the competition.
