Description:
Announcing a call for submissions to the 2003 HULTGREN SOLO CELLO WORKS BIENNIAL. This is a competition for living composers of any age held every other year. Cellist Craig Hultgren in conjunction with the Birmingham Art Music Alliance, the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Georgia State University, and the University of Alabama will present a full-length concert of competition finalists in Birmingham, Alabama, Atlanta, Georgia and Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Audiences in attendance at the conclusion of the performances will vote to award the $1,000 Birmingham Prize, the $1,000 Atlanta Prize, and the $500 Tuscaloosa Prize. Based upon such criteria as idiomatic craft, forward-looking conception, and innovative cello writing, a review panel will choose a single program of finalists to be presented in each city. New to this Biennial will be a publicly released, live recording on CD of the finalist compositions. The competition is open for solo cello works or works with cello and electronics (no cello and piano pieces nor concertos). To apply, submit 1) a complete performance score and all materials necessary for performance such as electronic components (DAT, CD or cassette formats are acceptable), 2) a cover letter signed by the composer containing the complete title of the applicant's work, the date the piece was completed, the approximate length of the work, the composer's birth date and the applicant's contact information such as postal address, telephone number and/or email address, 3) a concise paragraph of biographical material about the composer and a concise paragraph of program notes about the composition, and 4) a $7 handling fee (make checks payable to the Birmingham Art Music Alliance in US dollars). Materials should be sent to Hultgren Solo Cello Works Biennial; Birmingham Art Music Alliance; P.O. Box 11963; Birmingham, AL 35202-1963, USA. The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2003. Applicants may submit only one, complete work. The works may be for an acoustic instrument, an amplified-acoustic or a purely electronic cello. Cello works with computer sound processing is possible through a Macintosh G4 Powerbook. Submission of recordings are optional but helpful. All scored, solo cello works by composers of any nationality are eligible.
