Franz Schubert - String Quartet Rosamunde
Jury’s deliberations / Award ceremony
Each generation of composers must find its own sounding board, seek advice from experienced musicians and convince its early advocates of what their music has to say about the times in which we live. The aim of Young Masters XXI is to provide the most talented composers with exposure, to bring them together with open-minded musicians and to provide them with an ideal platform from which to enhance their profile. And you can help them achieve that. Why not come along and prepare to be amazed by the imagination of this latest generation of composers?
The Festival set the young composers with the challenge of composing a string quartet. In late June, the jury will decide which works will go through to the final,
in which the high-profile Ragazze Quartet will deliver the première of the works that have been selected. Why not come along and experience the tension, choose your winner and vote for the work that you think deserves the audience's prize!
And while the jury is deliberating, you can sit back and enjoy the playing of the ladies of the Ragazze Quartet, as they play the heartwarming Rosamunde Quartet by Schubert, who is well-known for his Lieder.
