Considering that there is a limited number of posts available for each Nation, like the previous years, the enrolment is open up to 25 March 2017 only to those composers who have submitted the pre-registration form; the others, conversely, will be able to register as well starting from 25 March. Anyhow, "All Composers" can immediately send their Registration Form, even if they have not submitted the pre-registration document, thus reserving their competition post, although we will send an official confirmation only after 25 March.
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) Concert of winners (click to see all details).
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
