Call for scores: ‘Pocket Ballet: Kalevala’ (2017)

The third Sibelius Festival – Golfo del Tigullio e Riviera (October 2017) will host Pocket Ballet, a project born some years ago, dedicated – as the title suggests – to the creation of events involving a small number of dancers and musicians. The first of these, Isofromatem, was premièred in Italy in 2014, introducing new works by four living composers from Italy, Greece, Israel and Finland. For 2017 a new ballet project, with a duration of less then one hour, inspired by the Finnish epic poem Kalevala, will be realized by choreographer Peter Larsen. The music will be entrusted to an instrumental trio: accordion, viola and kantele. All Finnish composers born after 31 December 1981 are eligible to submit scores for consideration.
