News! // Aspasia Nasopoulou receives Fair Practice Composition Commission Award 2021 from Nieuw Geneco - Congratulations!


Both curators of Nieuwe Noten Amsterdam now honored with Fair Practice Composition Award from Nieuw Geneco!

In 2019 Fie Schouten, in 2021 Orchestra de Ereprijs with artistic director Aspasia Nasopoulou.


On September 10, Nieuw Geneco, the Society for Dutch Composers, presented the second Nieuw Geneco Fair Practice Award Composition Assignment to two winners: Orchestra De Ereprijs (with artistic director Aspasia Nasopoulou) and patron Marcia (Zembla Music / Support de Composer) . They have been awarded for their unbridled commitment to fair remuneration for composers and for their contribution to sustainability in new music: They ensure that new work remains in the spotlight even after its premiere. The award ceremony took place during the Gaudeamus Muziekweek, Utrecht's festival for new music.

The jury about Orchestra De Ereprijs:
The new artistic direction of Orchestra De Ereprijs has taken up the work with effort and dedication. The orchestra provides many commissions, always thinking of a fair remuneration for the composer. The pieces are still often played after the premiere, even five or ten years later. This ensemble is all about quality, young and old, and inclusivity. The Young Composers Meeting organized by the orchestra has enormous significance for international composers, including young people.
