NCEM Young Composers Award 2014

25 September 2013

The National Centre for Early Music and BBC Radio 3 are partnering with The Tallis Scholars to present the 2014 NCEM Young Composers Award.

This major national award will be launched on BBC Radio 3's early music show on Sunday 17 November 2013. Composers under the age of 25 will be invited to write a piece for The Tallis Scholars, who are currently celebrating their 40th anniversary. A shortlist of entries will make it through to a workshop day in May 2014, with the winning compositions to be performed by The Tallis Scholars in Oxford next autumn, live on BBC Radio 3.

Director of the NECM Delma Tomlin said that the competition is 'a unique opportunity for young composers to broaden their audiences significantly.' Les Pratt, the lead producer for Radio 3's early music show, said they are delighted to be able to support young musicians reaching for the next stage of their career: 'The technical standards and breadth of originality from the young composers is always staggering, and we're looking forward to working through this exciting process.'

Interested applicants must register by 21 February 2014, with completed scores submitted by 21 March. Following the workshop day in May 2014, which culminates in a public concert, two winners will be announced - one from each age category.
