  5. Hello all! I would like to have a concert in 2012 October-November, which would be a solo cello concert. I will play pieces like Penderecki's Capriccio, and Ligeti Solo Sonata. On this concert, I would like to perform one of your pieces, so that's the reason for this competition. You can write for cello solo, or cello with electronic accompaniment (or other prerecorded staff). I prefer more xx. century or contemporary staff on this concert, so neo-classic and neo-romantic pieces won't be really accepted. The piece doesn't have to be new, but I like to be the world premiere cellist :) You have to send the (full) score to my e-mail --> gollam12@gmail.com I hope till June 1st everybody can do something for this small competition. Of course is somebody needs more time, it can be extended. Please write a comment, if you want to try this, so that I can see how many people will try. Also, if you have any questions, write it here, or write PM. Cheers, Marcell Magyari
  6. Hello to all YC members! I am here to announce the November edition of our very own monthly composition competition thingies. As I was thinking about what stimulus I should include for this competition, I looked back through some Lewis Carrol stuff and found the nonsense poem Jabberwocky. I thought this would make a wonderful piece of music, but I never got around to composing it so I have now decided to use it as a set poem for the November competition. First of all, here it is: `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. "Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!" He took his vorpal sword in hand: Long time the manxome foe he sought -- So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood awhile in thought. And, as in uffish thought he stood, The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, And burbled as it came! One, two! One, two! And through and through The vorpal blade went snicker-snack! He left it dead, and with its head He went galumphing back. "And, has thou slain the Jabberwock? Come to my arms, my beamish boy! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!' He chortled in his joy. `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. The composition that you enter has to incorporate this poem (or part of it) in the music in any way you like. Whether it's sung or not is up to you though. For instrumentation, you can include at least three and up to eight instruments/instrumentalists. If you decide to use voices, you can use any voice type(s) at all, but no more than four singers a to be included. Lengthwise, I'm looking at something between four and ten minutes, but I will allow a bit of lee-way. The entrants' works are due on the 27th of January (Mozart's 257th birthday if my calculations are correct) 2012. The judging will be out of 100. 50 marks for the incorporation of the poem in the music (please note it does not have to be sung) 10 marks for ensemble writing 20 marks for composition technique 20 marks for creativity. I will be on the judging panel with two other people, so let me know if you want to judge! Judges: 1. froglegs 2. Morivou 3. Treehugger1995 Entrants 1. Der Klavierspieler 2. Austenite 3. Calebhines
