Following last year's international success our Composition Competition is back in its 3rd year!
Inspired by the example of Zuzana Ruzickova, one of the leading harpsichordists of the 20th century, we continue to champion new music for period instruments.
We're honoured to name our competition in her memory and would like to encourage you to read more about Zuzana here.

No fee, no age limit and open to all nationalities, we threw out the rule book and gave composers just 3 months to compose their new piece in any style they pleased for a baroque ensemble.

SUBMISSION PERIOD CLOSES
From Turkmenistan to South Africa, Spain to UK, USA to Italy, Costa Rica to Sweden (and many others along the way), 16 new pieces were brought to life by composers from around the world!
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!
