Call for Scores Winners
The annual Pittsburgh Composers' Project features the work of established and emerging composers based in Pittsburgh. This year's concert includes the winners of NAT 28's third annual Call for Scores by emerging composers. Additionally, we will feature Leonardo Balada's Caprichos No. 1 for guitar and string quartet, a magnificent multi-movement, concerto-style work based on Federico Garcia Lorca's arrangements of Andalusian folk songs. Fans of Rodrigo's famous Concierto de Aranjuez will certainly fall in love with this work. A Piano Concerto by Jean-Patrick Besingrand (NAT 28 Composer-in-Residence) will receive its Pittsburgh premiere with our special guest Yumi Suehiro at the piano.
This year’s Call-for-Scores winners:
Devon Osamu Tipp’s Blood on the Pavement 1984 (bass clarinet, violin, viola, cello, and piano)
Xinyang Wang’s San-Guei (flute, clarinet, violin, viola, and cello)
Cullyn D. Murphy’s Come to/Hypnic Jerk (piccolo, clarinet, violin, cello, piano, and percussion)
The Pittsburgh Composers' Project is a great opportunity for audiences to experience the creative and innovative music written by composers who call Pittsburgh home.
