THIS CALL CLOSED ON 1 DEC 2017
Colchester New Music is pleased to announce a call for scores for two harpsichords, to be performed by the Knights-Tidhar harpsichord duo in Colchester in Spring 2018. All works submitted must be original, and not exceeding 7 minutes in length. There are no stylistic limitations.
Francis Knights and Dan Tidhar (http://harpsichordduo.webnode.com/) are the world’s busiest early keyboard duo, giving many performances each year of repertoire which ranges from the Renaissance to the present day (sound clips available here). They are actively seeking to expand the small contemporary repertoire for two harpsichords.
Please see our article on Composing for two harpsichords: some tips from the workshop.
Submissions will be judged anonymously by the performers and an external judge; results will be made available on this site in due course.
