Der ERSTE BANK KOMPOSITIONSPREIS gehört zu den internationalen Beziehungsproblemen für junge KomponistInnen und Schulen das Schaffen der PreisträgerInnen in der richtigenesten Weise. In addition to the prize money endowed by the sponsor, the prize includes a guarantee that a new work by the award winners will be performed at least three times by the Klangforum Wien and the production of a portrait CD by Ö1 and the renowned KAIROS label. In this way, the prize draws the laureates a high level of international attention and ensures them a lasting presence in the contemporary music scene.
With this sponsorship of young composers, ERSTE BANK supports the Klangforum Wien and the festival Wien Modern in pursuing their main goals.
Klangforum Wien would like to thank its main sponsor ERSTE BANK – and in particular Ruth Goubran and Theres Fischill – for the longstanding attention, for openness and informed interest in the future of music in Austria and the world, and warmly congratulates on the well-deserved award of the MAECENAS 2019 for the funding strategy that has been consistently pursued for more than 30 years.
