This year’s call for scores will result in two commissions.

The first will be:
Flute(s), Clarinet(s), Percussion, Piano, Guitar, Violin and Cello, and will appear on a Riot Ensemble’s main-stage concert at Kings Place (Hall One) in 2021.

The second will be:
Flute(s), Oboe(s), Clarinet(s), Violin, Viola and Cello, and will be a part of Riot Ensemble’s opening concert in a new festival we are launching in London, in early 2021.

Both pieces will be rehearsed and given a public premiere in 2021, and both composers will receive a professional, live AV recording of their piece. (This is a minimum. All our commissions are considered for our ongoing recording sessions, and many of our commissions to-date have been released on our growing discography.)

Commission Fee
The fees this year are supported by PRS Foundation’s The Open Fund, and are £1750 for each commission, with another £250 available to support travel and/or publishing costs.

Any composer not currently represented on our 2020 Season is eligible to apply.

Entry Fee
We are charging an entry fee of £10. All funds raised from this call go directly to musicians involved in the concert in which these works will be premiered.

The deadline is 14th February at 11:59pm LONDON time.
We regret that under no circumstances will we be able to extend this deadline!

Entries will firstly be judged against eligibility and the winning composers will then be chosen by members of our Artistic Board. The winning composers will be announced no later than 14th March with the final pieces due in December of this year.
