Losh-Atkinson Historic Sounds Composition Competition

The Aim, outline and Judging

Norwich Baroque is keen to widen the appreciation of Baroque music by challenging composers to experiment with the sounds and styles of the 17th and early 18th centuries to produce a work with a distinctive 21st century flavour.

Composers of any age, nationality or background are invited to compose a new piece for the British early music ensemble, Norwich Baroque (Patron: Michael Chance).

The works for the final year have under-gone the first round of judging by a panel comprising:

- Dr Simon Heighes – music historian, broadcaster, writer and honorary friend of Norwich Baroque.
- Jim O’Toole – violinist and director of Norwich Baroque.
- Dr Jonathan Girling – composer and musical director
- Tadeusz Kaznowski – conductor, composer and horn player
