This year Impuls accademy (Graz) together with Gaudeamus Festival (Utrecht) is running a call for scores for solo doublebass. I will play the selected pieces both in Graz next february and in Utrecht next september. There are not many limitations in the call for scores, as long as the piece is new or has been “restyled”. I will also give feedbacks to all the composers involved, and will try to manage to have as many pieces performed as possible, either by me either by the doublebass students of the Impuls accademy. There are only a few days left. Check what you have to do at the Impuls academy website: http://www.impuls.cc/en/academy-2015/special-programs.html#c2610
I’m really looking forward to this project, since it will be an ideal occasion to meet younger composers, exchange ideas and stimulate the creation of new challenging repertoire for doublebass.
