We are proud to share that Fonds Podiumkunsten has honored two applications for composition commissions from Orkest De Ereprijs! New works by Oğuz Büyükberber and Ned McGowan will premiere in the autumn of 2021.
Each of them will be awarded a commission.
- Orkest De Ereprijs commission:
- St. Frank van der Wal Fonds commission:
- RKST21 commission:
In the coming weeks, students at ten secondary schools in the Netherlands and Germany will close the Ereprijs composition project with a concert, where all new compositions will be performed by Orkest De Ereprijs. Due to the corona measures, the concerts are not open to the public, but can be followed via a live stream.
From January 2021 Aspasia Nasopoulou will take over from Wim Boerman as artistic leader of de ereprijs. We look ahead with her to the period from 2021.
The limitations of the moment will determine the shape of our upcoming concerts, but these rules do not prevent us from looking ahead with enthusiasm and an open mind. We want to strengthen the link between current music and current events in society: to show that new music is needed.
