The association “The five peaks’park” (Cuasso al Monte, Italy) calls the first edition of the international competition (with free entry; deadline 28th February 2021) for musical composition named THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN. The competition is dedicated to the writing of new songs for Bercandeon, an instrument of new conception, which is related to the accordion and the bandoneon.

The winning compositions will be performed in the form of Bercandeon solo or with more Bercandeons (for compositions involving bigger instrumentations) on May 30th 2021 (date to be confirmed) in a public concert on one of the five peaks of the park (or in another location).

The performance will be filmed and recorded for documentary and promotional purposes.

The winners will receive a copy of the video for free.

In case the concert couldn’t take place in the usual way due to force majeure (for example a lockdown because of coronavirus), it will be performed on a web channel.

The winning composer will be entitled to a 1000 € reimbursement, the second place 600€ and the third place 300€.
