Oberton International Composition Competition

03 May - 01 Oct, 2021

The Oberton String Octet presents the first edition of this Competition.

As the organization of a chamber music group consisting of eight musicians has been always challenging, there are not so many pieces ever composed for a string octet. Nevertheless the genre offers mesmerizing complexity and richness of the sound and colors.

The aim of the Competition is to encourage both young and experienced composers to expand the string octet repertoire and to make it more popular among chamber musicians and educational institutions.

Because of these reasons the Oberton International Composition Competition was founded and will be held in Graz, Austria in 2021 for the first time.
