Orpheus Music Composition Competition 2020 - Recorder Quartets

This year Orpheus Music held a composition competition to support and promote new Australian compositions for the recorder.

To see the results of our competition please click here.

We'd like to thank all the composers who submitted scores for making this competition possible and to everyone who shared our competition to the wider community.

A big thank you goes to our sponsors for the prizes - Sydney Society of Recorder players, Victorian Recorder Guild and Society of Recorder Players - South Australia. We look forward to hosting another composition competition next year, with a section for recorder quintet or sextet and a new section: recorder solo.

In total we had 38 scores submitted, with many recorder players, music teachers, and professional composers from all around Australia and New Zealand. We had an equal number of male and female composers submit scores.

We look forward to publishing a selection of these new recorder quartets in the following months.
