Yvar Mikhashoff Pianist/Composer Commissioning Project

The Yvar Mikhashoff Trust for New Music is pleased to announce the guidelines for the seventh annual international competition for pianist/composer collaborations.

The composer will write a new piece for piano solo, with or without electronics; this work will then be premiered by the pianist between January and September 2015. The competition is limited to applicants, both pianists and composers, born on or after January 1, 1979.
