Roche Young Commissions 2019
Composition Commissions for the 2019 Roche Young Commissions Awarded to Marianna
Liik and Josep Planells Schiaffino.
Marianna Liik and Josep Planells Schiaffino have been awarded commissions by the 2019 Roche Young Commissions to compose new works. Wolfgang Rihm, the Artistic Director of the Lucerne Festival Academy, selected both young artists, who were officially greeted at Roche on 4 September. Liik and Planells Schiaffino will each compose a work by 2019, on which they will work during the summer of 2018 together with Rihm and the Orchestra of the Lucerne Festival Academy. The works will then be given their world premiere during the 2019 Summer Festival (more).
