Promoting musical creation

Reina Sofia Composition Prize

Acknowledging today’s composers means working so that their works are played and listened to.

 

If you think about a music composer you will probably picture something rather distant. Something centuries old. It may seem that we only fill up theaters and music venues to celebrate those centennial authors, but today’s music creation is still very much alive. And it’s our duty to make sure that the art that will sustain our future doesn’t go unnoticed. The work of our composers enriches our present while creating our future heritage.

It’s crucial to create the structures that will effectively support  this kind of creative work. With the Reina Sofia Composition Prize we aim to give the composer recognition but also a platform to promote their music.

The competition gives a prize of 100.000€ that will ensure the viability of the composer’s labour. The Prize is given by Her Majesty Queen Sofia of Spain, enchancing the great prestige to the winner. The prized composition will be played in premiere by the most important orchestra in the contry: Orquestra Radio Televisión Española.

The Reina Sofia Composition Prize aims to be a platform to promote the writing of new music for orchestra.
