Uitgast Festival Prize 2022












The international call for compositions ‘Uitgast Festival Prize 2022' was a great success.

We received 27 compositions for the unique instrumentation of BLACK PENCIL: recorder, panflute, viola, accordion and percussion, inspired by the theme of 'Music and Nature'. Composers from 17 countries submitted new works: Argentina, Armenia, Austria, Brazil, China, Ecuador, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, UK and USA. The quality and great variety of the new compositions made a difficult job for the jury. The jury decided to grant the main prize and three honorary mentions.


It is our pleasure to announce the winner of the ‘Uitgast Festival Prize 2022'.
