1. Competition Day

Following the success of the second Basel Composition Competition (BCC) in February 2019, a third competition is to be held at the Music and Culture Center Don Bosco from 3 to 7 March 2021 under the directorship of Jury President Michael Jarrell, a composer from western Switzerland. The intention is to attract the most exciting composers in the world to Basel and have their works premiered by the city’s orchestras. In this respect, the competition is very true to the spirit of what was achieved by the late Basel conductor and patron Paul Sacher (1906-1999). The members of the jury will include the composers Michael Jarrell (Jury President), Unsuk Chin, Beat Furrer and Andrea Scartazzini, as well as the Director of the Paul Sacher Foundation, Felix Meyer. The nominated works will be performed at four public competition concerts by the Basel Chamber Orchestra, the Basel Symphony Orchestra and the Basel Sinfonietta.
