On September 10, 2021, Nieuw Geneco presented the second Fair Practice Award Composition Commission to two winners: Orkest De Ereprijs and patron Marcia (Zembla Music / Support the Composer). Both have been awarded for their unbridled commitment to fair remuneration for composers and for their contribution to sustainability in new music: they ensure that new work remains in the spotlight even after its premiere.
New video: 'Thin Air' by 'Componist des Vaderlands' Calliope Tsoupaki. 'Thin Air' has now been performed more than 45 times all over the world as part of Festivals for Compassion.
In February we recorded the new composition 'Upstream' by Lise Morrison. She wrote this new work for the first concert 'Ear for each other' in the concert series 'Aardlek: urgent matters'. Unfortunately, this concert could not continue due to the lockdown, but we are now proud to present the online premiere with video by Okke van Breemen.
Appllications are now closed.
The annual Young Composers Meeting is an initiative of Orkest De Ereprijs. We offer young professional composers the opportunity to compose a piece for the ensemble and thus develop their talents, thereby increasing their knowledge and building a network.
