The goal is to stimulate composers to provide new repertoire by providing them with intimate information about the instrument and its remarkable capabilities. Composers living in the Netherlands and students of a Dutch Conservatory studying composition are warmly invited to take part in this project.
A workshop will be given on the 6th of April during the afternoon, starting at 1 pm ending around 5 pm. The specific aspects of the the carillon and the possibilities in composing for it will be discussed during the afternoon (length, solo/ ensemble, combined with electronics etc.)
Teachers: Frans Haagen and Gijsbert Kok
Participants wishing to take part in the project will be accompanied by a carillon student during the project. He/she will subsequently perform the work composed by the participant.
At the end of June, on a date yet to be notified, a masterclass will be given by a well-known composer who has composed for carillon and is well acquainted with the instrument. The compositions made by the participants will then be discussed with them. The composer will also expound / comment on his own work.
A concert will be given in the autumn where the premièrs of the five best compositions will be performed. The five composer-participants will receive a prize of €1000,- each at the end of this event.
The compositions will be published by the Dutch Carillon Society and the Dutch Carillon Centre.
