Music and Time is the theme of IEMA’s next International Composition Seminar, which – directed by the Ensemble Modern and the composer and conductor Johannes Kalitzke – will then be taking place for the sixth time in 2013.

The International Composition Seminar 2013 and its two final concerts are integrated into the second edition of the festival cresc... Biennale für Moderne Musik which takes place between 21st and 24th November 2013 in Frankfurt and Darmstadt.
Through the cooperation with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, hr-Sinfonieorchester, the International Composition Seminar will again be giving the opportunity to work together with a large orchestra. The seminar will be offering 4 assignments of works for ensemble and 2 assignments of works for orchestra and ensemble.

The guiding theme is connected to the festival theme of cresc... 2013. Under the topic »Music and Time«, the work and mindscape of composer Bernd Alois Zimmermann are brought into focus and contrasted with current approaches to the topic.
