Wiener Symphoniker: Call for Scores

31 Oct - 23 Nov, 2019

Andrés Orozco-Estrada wishes to begin his tenure as Chief Conductor of the Wiener Symphoniker in October 2020 with a 'musical embrace'. To fulfil this goal, the orchestra, an ensemble steeped in Viennese tradition, is commissioning a new work for brass and percussion.

The musical embrace will begin the programme of Orozco-Estrada's inaugural concert in the Great Hall of the Konzerthaus Vienna. The work will be performed from various positions away from the concert platform, so that the music will surround, embrace and envelope the audience from all sides. This extraordinary spatial musical experience will represent a gesture of welcome to the audience from the incoming Chief Conductor and his orchestra.

The commission of the work, to be ca. 5 minutes in length, will be awarded to the winner of a two-stage selection process.
Closing date: 23 Nov 2019
