The Lontano Quartet and the Villa of Composers are launching a call for new pieces in 2023:

- for string quartet and voice (mezzo-soprano or baritone)
- in tribute to Molière (1622-1673), on texts extracted from his works in French, or inspired by them
- duration : 4-10 minutes
- deadline : May 15, 2023 (12:00 pm, CET)

The application form will be available on the Villa of Composers website from January 15, 2023. The pieces (unpublished) lasting between 4 and 10 minutes, will be sent by email to the Villa of Composers, accompanied by the participation files, before May 15, 2023 (12:00 pm, Central European Time, CET).

After a first selection, then a first public reading at the beginning of June 2023, the quartet and a personality will determine the list of works to be included in the Collection of the Villa of Composers.

The selected works will be promoted over time by the Lontano Quartet and by the Villa of Composers, and subsequently by the performers who have been made aware of this Collection.
