Radom Chamber Orchestra proudly announces Krzysztof Penderecki International Composers’ Competition ARBORETUM 2019
Radom City can be proud of its centuries-old music tradition. The most distinguished Polish composer of the Middle Ages, Nicholas of Radom, created his music in this royal city. It emphasises the standing and the importance of the centre, also on the cultural map of the Jagiellonian country. The people of Radom have always felt a strong need to create and exist in a cultural field. It is proved by organisation of the International Composers’ Competition – Certamen Compositorum Internationale ARBORETUM and the commitment of one of the most distinguished composers of our times, Krzysztof Penderecki. The Competition originated from the need to experience art, felt both by creators and the public. The regulations of the competition clearly state that Professor Krzysztof Penderecki is the person who is responsible to decide which of the composers has created a work deserving special recognition. Six compositions will be presented during the competition’s second round, concert for final selection performed by the Radom Chamber Orchestra. It will take place in the Krzysztof Penderecki Concert Hall in Radom on the 29th of November 2019. ARBORETUM accepts works scored for a string orchestra.
