First performances, chat with composers

In collaboration with Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, the chamber ensemble Gageego! and the Swedish Composers’ Association, STIM has instituted a composition competition focusing on chamber music.

Here is the concert with this year’s three winners. In the spring of 2020, Swedish composers submitted 100 entries to the competition. An international jury consisting of representatives from the ensembles participating in the project selected the winners:

Category for solo works: Britta Byström: Baum in der Stadt

Category for duo: Henrik Denerin: Totenkopf

Category for ensemble: Leilei Tian: The Hymn of the Pearl

The prize money is SEK 50,000 in each category. The winners of the Swedish Chamber Games gathered at the concert in Gothenburg Concert Hall on October 10, 2020, where the works were performed by Gageego!.
