Piano Trio Call for Scores, Tree Falls

October 11, 2014 in All Opportunities, Composers by newmusicscotland

Treefalls is looking for new works for Piano Trio. The chosen piece(s) will be performed by ensemble Trio d’Esprit on our April 24, 2015 concert in Spartanburg, SC.


  • under age 38 (born after April 24, 1977)
  • from anywhere in the world
  • Preference* will be given to “unknown” composers and to those who come from traditionally underrepresented groups.


  • 10 minutes or less
  • composed/written since Jan 1, 2005
  • Though they may have been premiered, eligible works will not have been professionally recorded & released before April 24, 2015.


  • Piano Trio: violin, cello, and piano
  • Please note: we are not looking for subsets of this group; all three instruments should be involved in the performance of the work.


    • a brief bio (in English)
    • a PDF of score and parts (may be separate files or may be one file)
    • program notes (in English)
    • a link to an audio file recording of the piece; it may be on Soundcloud, Dropbox, etc. (Live musicians preferred, piano renditions accepted, and good midi is okay – just so long as we can tell what’s what.)

by 11:59pm (EST / UTC-05:00) on Friday Dec 5, 2014.



      • There is NO LIMIT to the number of pieces a composer can submit, but we kindly ask that you do not overwhelm us; a good maximum number is around 3. Feel free to email us if yours is a special case.
      • Chosen works remain under the copyright of their composers and do not transfer in any way to Treefalls.
      • Although we would dearly love to have the composer of the chosen work attend the concert, no travel stipend can be offered at this time.
      • There is no prize money associated with the Call for Scores at this time.
      • Treefalls reserves the right to not choose a piece if none are deemed suitable or we cannot accommodate them in the time given. We also reserve the right to choose more than one piece as well, so send us your stuff!

* Ultimately, we will choose the piece that best suits both the program and the ensemble. However, in keeping with the Mission of the organization, our desire is to present the variety, the diversity, and the wonderfully eclectic nature of New Music. So we are apt to chose works and composers that offer contrast to the traditional and well-represented groups.
