APPLICATIONS CLOSE 10 DECEMBER
Composing the Future is a new competition created by the Sydney International Piano Competition (The Sydney) to support Australian composers and pianists at a crucial time in all our lives, with a total prize pool of $30,000.
Australian composers are invited to submit a new or unpublished solo piano piece for consideration by a panel of eminent Australian pianists – Tamara Anna Cislowska, Kristian Chong Daniel de Borah, Bernadette Harvey and Ian Munro. The panel, led by The Sydney’s Artistic Director, Piers Lane AO, will select a winning work, which will be awarded $20,000 and receive a world premiere by the winner of Italian/Slovenian pianist Alexander Gadjiev, the winner of the 2021 Sydney International Online Piano Competition, during his national tour in late 2022. In addition, up to five other entries will be awarded cash prizes of $2,000 each and will be given public performances by the jury pianists during 2022, to mark the 45th anniversary of The Sydney.
