IMC announces the results of the 2012 International Rostrum of Composers

logo irc Good Paris, May 29, 2012. The 59th International Rostrum of Composers (IRC) took place at the Radiohuset in Stockholm, May 22 - 25 2012, organised by the International Music Council and Swedish Radio.
The 2012 Rostrum gathered representatives from 27 national radio networks from four continents, which presented 50 works composed within the five years preceding the Rostrum. Finnish Radio Executive Producer Heikki Valsta chaired the sessions. After the listening sessions, the assembly of delegates selected and recommended the most important works in two categories: general and "young composers". These and other works will be presented in concerts and broadcast after the Rostrum by the participating and other interested radio stations.

Pursuing its mission to promote contemporary music creation through broadcasting for almost sixty years, the annual Rostrum has this year again strengthened its role as one of the most important "rendez-vous" for professional exchange between radio producers. Its overall objective remains fostering the exchange of performances of contemporary music between broadcasting organisations. For example, works chosen at the preceding Rostrum (2011) were given some 500 broadcasts by participating networks as well as affiliates of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).
