Dancing Through Time

The National Centre for Early Music and BBC Radio 3 invited aspiring young composers to create a new work for the vibrant young recorder quartet Palisander.  The winning pieces will be premiered by Palisander in a public performance which will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s Early Music Show.

The Award will be judged at the National Centre for Early Music on Thursday 13 May 2021 when the shortlisted composers will hear their compositions presented by Palisander in a workshop led by composer Christopher Fox. At 7pm that evening, Palisander will perform each of the pieces in the presence of a panel of judges, and the winners will be announced after the concert. There are two awards, one for each age category. The concert will be live streamed and available to watch on this website.

This year the National Centre for Early Music and BBC Radio 3 invited aspiring young composers to create a new work for recorder quartet based on dance-forms, choosing whatever dance-form they liked across all eras and cultures, from the bransle and the galliard to the Charleston and the tango.

This major national annual award is open to young composers resident in the UK and aged up to 25.

It is judged in two age categories:

18 years and under

19–25 years
