Mauricio Kagel Composition Competition – Piano Pieces for Children

The competition is held by the Institut Ludwig van Beethoven at the Music University Vienna. It is looking for piano pieces written for children and young adults which, although limited in their technical difficulty, remain uncompromising in their artistic aim; pieces written with a contemporary compositional technique which offer the young student stimulus, insight and new experiences: experiences about oneself and the world in which we live.

Invited are composers under the age of 40 and participation deadline is 15th August 2015. The total prize pool is € 10´000.
