Gaudeamus invites young composers (35 years or younger) worldwide to write a new saxophone quartet for the Keuris Quartet.
Keuris Quartet is an international saxophone quartet specialized in the interpretation of contemporary classical music. After winning the first prize at the 1st Strasbourg International Saxophone Quartet Competition in 2015, the quartet is seen as one of the most exciting saxophone quartets of this time.
Call for sketches
Send a composition sketch with a maximum length of one minute before August 1. We would like to receive sheet music / PDF and a midi file.
From the entries, a selection will be made for the Reading Session. On August 8th we will make known which sketches are selected.
During the Reading Session all selected sketches are played and you have the opportunity to work with the four members of the quartet. At the end of the Reading Session, a number of composers will be able to develop their sketch for a whole 5-7 minute composition with a possible performance in Gaudeamus Music Week 2018.
