FRANZ LISZT-scholarship for young composers
2019 FRANZ LISZT Composition Scholarship for acousmatic composition and Master Class with Jonty Harrison
The University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar biennually grants a scholarship for a young composer of acousmatic music. This year's stipend will be awarded in conjunction with a master class given by composer Jonty Harrison.
Four to five applicants will be invited to Weimar to take part in Jonty Harrison’s master class from July 11th through 14th. As part of the master class, each participant will present one of their own acousmatic compositions and prepare the work for concert interpretation over the SeaM loudspeaker orchestra. At the end of the master class, one participant will be awarded the 2019 FRANZ LISZT Composition Scholarship. The invitation to the masterclass is part of the scholarship, so that the participants have free accommodation, and they receive part of the travel fees back.
The scholarship recipient will be granted free accommodation as well as a monthly grant of EUR 1.000 for a period of three months in order to live and work in Weimar. In addition, the recipient will have the opportunity to take part in the academic and artistic life of the University of Music FRANZ LISZT and the school’s Studio for electroacoustic Music (SeaM Weimar). The quantity and type of artistic work to be produced during the stay in Weimar is not prescribed. The recipient is free to shape his/her work in the manner they choose. The period of the stipend should occur within the school’s academic semester.
The mentor for the scholarship and master class is Prof. Robin Minard. The competition is open to young composers of all nationalities not over 35 years of age. Graduates of the University of Music FRANZ LISZT are not eligible to apply for the sholarship. Applications should consist of a cover letter as well as a curriculum vitae and two acousmatic works, one of which will be interpreted in concert on the SeaM loudspeaker orchestra. The concert work should not exceed a duration of 15 minutes.
