Rome, June 1, 2016 - Today the Concorso Novaro officially begins. The website www.concorsonovaro.com is now online. The Jury of the first edition, 2016, will include composers Luca Lombardi, Cristian Carrara, Giulio Castagnoli, the famous singer and composer Elio (frontman of Elio e Le Storie Tese) and pianist Roberto Prosseda.
The Competition is open to composers of all nationalities, who on 30 September 2016 are still under the age of 30. Candidates should submit to the jury a composition for Ensemble, lasting between 7 and 10 minutes, which is inspired by the values and themes of the Italian constitution. In particular, composers should focus on the theme of the “Italian landscape”, which lies at the basis of article 9 of the Constitution. The work should involve at least 7 instruments, up to a maximum of 15 (only one instrument for each type), chosen from the following: violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute and/or piccolo (one player), clarinet and/or bass clarinet (one player), bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, harp, percussion (maximum two players), piano.
The competition will consist of two phases: the elimination phase and the final phase. In the elimination phase, which will conclude by 30 October 2016, the jury will select up to a maximum of 3 compositions which will pass into the final phase.
The works chosen for the final will be published on the site of the Competition on 31 October 2016 and the three finalist composers will be informed by email.
The final phase of the competition will consist of an evening event open to the public in Turin to be held on 2 December 2016 in the Sala Grande of the “Giuseppe Verdi” Conservatory, during which the Ensemble di Musica Contemporanea del Conservatorio di Torino, directed by Giuseppe Ratti, will perform the selected works in a concert. After the performances the jury, who will be present in the concert hall, will meet and decide on the winner. The winning composition will be announced at the end of the evening.
