The IV International Uuno Klami Composition Competition will be held between 2018-2019.
The aim of the competition is to produce good new repertoire for a small orchestra of sinfonietta type: works the performance of which will not necessitate the costly hiring of many extras or unusual, difficult-to-find instruments
The Jury will be Finland’s Kalevi Aho and Magnus Lindberg and Estonia’s Erkki-Sven Tüür. The conductor member of the Jury will be Olari Elts (Estonia).
The following prizes will be awarded:
I prize €11,000,
II prize €9,000
III prize €7,000.
There is no age limit or entry fee. Compositions must be submitted to the Competition Office by 3 December 2018 at the latest.
The works shortlisted for the finals will be performed by the Kymi Sinfonietta at two finals concerts, to be held in the cities of Kouvola and Kotka (Finland) in autumn 2019. The Jury chooses the winners only after hearing the finals concerts and their rehearsals.
