We’re excited to announce that this year’s Composer Alive commission is going to composer Agnieszka Stulginska from Warsaw Poland.
Composer Alive is our annual international commissioning project in which we ask a composer in a different country to compose a piece of music in installments and email each installment to us as she writes it.
Each installment is then rehearsed and recorded in front of a live audience and posted to our website with comments from the composer. The idea is to give an audience the chance to hear a piece of music composed from first draft, through rewrites, to the finish product and also to give a composer the chance to try out new ideas in a three month virtual workshop.
The project will culminate in April with a final concert at which we’ll give the World Premiere of the new piece and perform music of other living Polish composers.
