|Members of the CIA Music
Committee have been continually evaluating the program requirements of
the various Coupe Mondiale categories, and this year have established
a new format which provides them the opportunity to promote many new original
works for the accordion.
Instead of requiring candidates to perform a Test Piece in the Coupe Mondiale,
this year the CIA will offer a Special Recognition Award for Best New
Original Solo Work, composed in 2007/2008, presented at the Coupe Mondiale
for the first time in both Classical and Entertainment.
If you are performing a new solo work(s), composed in 2007/2008 as
part of your competition program (no time restriction), which has never
been performed at a previous Coupe Mondiale, that you would like
to present in consideration for this award, you will be given the opportunity
to submit this work for consideration, as you complete your on-line entry
Classical: Contestants from the Coupe Mondiale, the Junior Coupe
Mondiale and the International Competition for Piano Accordion who wish
to have their new work(s) considered for this award, will be required
to perform the piece(s) on Saturday, 25th October, 2008. This will ensure
that the same jury hears the new works presented for consideration.
Virtuoso Entertainment: Contestants from the Senior and
Junior Virtuoso Entertainment will have their nominated works considered
for this award as they perform their competition program.
