Composition Competition


MEETINGS - International Competition 2014/15

The aim of MEETINGS was to stimulate the composition of new repertoire, which integrates classical Chinese and Western instruments, and to promote these new works and their creators at the institutions involved and through their networks to relevant partners and other music organizations.

The composition competition MEETINGS was organized by The Royal Danish Academy of Music (RDAM) in collaboration with the Central Conservatory of Music and the Beijing Modern Music Festival and hosted by the Music Confucius Institute at RDAM.

The Music Confucius Institute aims to facilitate musical and cultural exchange and development between China and Denmark. The initiative of this composition competition fits in with the basic ideas of the Music Confucius Institute by broadening the knowledge of Chinese musical instruments and investigating new sound worlds in the meetings between Eastern and Western musical traditions.
