Following last year's international success our Composition Competition is back!
This year we would like to celebrate the life and career of one of the world's leading harpsichordists Zuzana Ruzickova and her invaluable role in promoting pieces by modern composers on period instruments.
Despite suffering enormous hardship she overcame all obstacles to become a leading figure. During the pandemic we've been inspired by Zuzana's spirit and strength and we're honoured to name our competition in her memory.
Find out more about Zuzana here.

Competitions don't just grow on trees
Recording space, musicians, film crews and equipment are all expensive and we are hugely grateful to everyone who has helped support our work last year.
With your help we can create something really special ONCE AGAIN!
