Invitation to composers
2009 - 2011
Invitation to Composers is a ground-breaking project for the European Commission.
The London Schubert Players Trust, The Romanian Cultural Institute in Paris and Info Manager Association in Bucharest invite you to join them on a remarkable classical music journey across Europe and beyond.
Over two years (November 2009 - October 2011) an impressive number of concerts, workshops, seminars, conferences, and presentations of audio-visual products and publications will take place in the UK, France and Romania.
The musical journey leads audiences and performers to the very source of inspiration and establishes a new form of relationship between composers, performers and audiences around the world. It is a consequence of the unique international call to composers to enrich the European classical music patrimony with instrumental combinations that do not exist or are very rare in the chamber music repertoire.
Five works by Schubert, Mendelssohn, Saint-Saens, Messiaen and Enescu have been chosen as inspirational "models" and are performed and recorded side-by-side with the new works.
The audience is made to feel part of the creative process by taking an active part in the dialogue between composers and performers during the seminars and workshops.
