1.) impuls . international Composition Competition . Selection for 2023


Our heartful thanks go to all composers, who have shared their works, materials and concepts with us for the impuls Composition Competition back in 2020. In April 2021 a jury consisting of composers and musicians (Mark Andre, Franck Bedrossian, Markus Deuter, Clara Iannotta, Andreas Lindenbaum) selected the following composers out of numerous applications sent in from more than 45 nations and 4 continents for impuls commissions:


Maurizio Azzan (*1987, Italy)

Oren Boneh (*1991, Poland/USA/Israel)
Sachie Kobayashi (*1990, Japan)

Anna Korsun (*1986, Ukraine)


These composers will take part in the upcoming impuls Composition Workshop in Vienna and Graz with Klangforum Wien coming along with commissions to write new pieces for the ensemble, that will be premiered in Graz together with one more work of a former nominee at the impuls Festival on February 10th, 2023.
