Luxembourg's Ministry of Culture has launched a call for applications for the creation of musical compositions for nine orchestras or musical ensembles for the 2023/2024 season.

As part of its policy of publicly commissioning musical compositions, the Culture Ministry is searching for new composition projects for nine orchestras or musical ensembles for the next musical season.

The system of commissioning the writing of original and new musical works constitutes one of the main axes of public policy in favour of support for contemporary creation and pursues a triple objective:

  • to stimulate the creation of a large number of musical projects and thus contribute to the renewal of repertoires;
  •  to support the work of composers; to ensure the diversity of the offer by encouraging musical structures (orchestras, musical ensembles, etc.)
  • to programme works by contemporary Luxembourg composers.

The programme provides composers with recognition of their work by the Luxembourg State and supports the efforts of creation and dissemination structures, which present the selected works to the public.

This call for applications is open until Sunday 2 July 2023. The conditions and criteria of the call for applications are available (in French) on the website of the Ministry of Culture.
