Asian Composers Showcase 2020

Open Call for Scores


The Asian Composers Showcase was launched in 2013 by the Goethe-Institut together with the Tongyeong International Music Festival (TIMF), to promote the composition of New Music in North East Asia. For seven years now, a total of thirty compositions by promising young composers have been premiered at TIMF.

Goethe-Institut Korea currently invites composers from the region to take part in a call for scores for the Asian Composers Showcase 2020. From the entries, an international panel of judges will select five participants whose pieces will be performed at the Tongyeong intl. Music Festival in April 2020. On the basis of the performances, one of the composers will be given the Goethe Award, endowed with 2,000 EUR, and receive a composition commission for the following year’s festival, amounting to an additional 5,000 EUR.
