About the Prize
The ALEA III International Composition Prize was established in 1980 and has also been known under the names of the Politis Composition Prize and the Kucyna International Composition Prize. We are proud to announce that the Greek ministry of culture and Boston University will continue the sponsorship of the ALEA III Competition. The purpose of the prize is to promote and encourage the composition of new music. Several works will be chosen for performance.
ALEA III, Performing Arts Ensemble in Residence at Boston University, under the direction of Theodore Antoniou, will rehearse and perform the compositions of the finalists. ALEA III is well known for its dedication to the presentation of new works and, owing to its flexible instrumentation, is uniquely suited to the performing group for this competition. Among the judges will be well known personalities of the Boston music scene.
One work will be selected for a $2,500 cash award, which will be announced in late September, or early October 2012. (The judges reserve the right to divide the award money or to decline to make any award.)
