|2009 Award for Best New Original Work - Classical and Virtuoso Entertainment|
|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 2008/2009, 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 2008/2009 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 form.
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) at a time to be determined during the 2009 Coupe Mondiale festival. 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.
