The Maurice Ravel International Contest will open March 10, 2017, for those who have made the Preregistration. The competition will open for all the other composers Saturday, March 25, 2017.
PREREGISTRATION FOR THE THIRD EDITION (Possible up to March 9, 2017)
While waiting for the official announcement and opening of the third edition, all composers have the chance to do a preregistration free of charge to secure one of the available places for the upcoming contest. Please consider that in this edition, too, the number of places will be limited. At the official opening of the third edition we will send an email to all preregistered composers, who will be asked to decide which category to register in, after viewing the updated contest rules. Composers will then be required to finalize their registration or abandon the contest if they are no longer interested.
FOR PREREGISTRATIONS: please download the Preregistration Form, from this Page or on the Registrations page. Please fill in the form and send it to the email address specified on the form. For the third edition the email address is changed, for this edition please just write to the new address: email@example.com
The third edition of the contest is likely to be the last one or, alternatively, to take place every two years in the future. Probably, the management of any further edition will shift from the "Associazione Ravel" to our Spanish partners, who are already cooperating with us on the third edition. This choice is due to the increasing burden of the whole contest organization, which impinges upon the time that they would rather spend on many other ongoing initiatives, such as the inauguration of our music publishing company as well as some concerts and customised recordings. However we will keep on dealing with numerous interesting initiatives relating to music and composition.
FURTHER SERVICES: WORK IN PROGRESS
1) Custom Concerts: all composers may submit their compositions to be included in the program of the concerts scheduled in 2017-2018. The repertoire of each concert will be distributed among several composers, each of whom will choose whether to contribute one or more compositions. Composers will also have the opportunity to request a concert entirely based on their compositions alone.
2) Custom Recordings: we offer a professional recording service for those interested in recording a performance of their compositions. The recordings can be uploaded on YouTube or other websites, or burned on CD/DVD.
3) We inform all the participants that a specific website is under construction, where all the main winners of the first and second edition of the Maurice Ravel competition and of the Film Music 2016 contest will be presented. Many winners are not professional musicians, but rather composition and musical instrument students. Therefore, this website has been designed to increase their popularity and also include other composers at a later time. As soon as the website is completed, we will communicate the relating Internet address, both through our Newsletter and on the Results page.
4) As for the awarding concert (of the second edition). the relating information will be soon available on this page. We are making the final agreements with one of the major orchestras which already cooperate with us in order to arrange for a high-level concert. As soon as the date is confirmed, we will provide all the details on the event.
The audio file of the winning compositions have not been published yet, since the first and second composer in each category, whose compositions will be performed live by an amazing orchestra, have decided to wait for the publication of the award concert, thus avoiding the reproduction of audio files recorded with virtual instruments, which would impair the listening of the composition.
Some great international orchestras have started to collaborate with us, even on the occasion of the third edition of the Maurice Ravel competition, and will be actively involved also in the preparation of concerts and customized recordings, in addition to the awarding concerts.
Some of the outstanding orchestras cooperating with us are:
Prague Philharmonic Orchestra
Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava
New Europe Orchestra
Orchestra Simfonică București
