impuls promotes and supports young composers not only at its Academy, but also through the international impuls Composition Competition. For 2015 again young composers were selected by a jury back in 2013 and commissioned to write new works for Klangforum Wien, one of the world´s leading ensembles. Four of these newly written works will be premiered tonight and one more already existing work by another young composer of the Competition performed as well. All five composers can also be met in person. Already back on February 11th a Round Table with them focussing on composition and interpretation was scheduled at mica in Vienna. Before tonight´s premiere the audience can get valuable insights at the Composers´ Talk scheduled for 6 pm, and tomorrow, February 14th holds another opportunity to find out more about their works at the discussion Composers in Dialogue led by composer and conductor of the concert Clement Power.
