The “Franco Donatoni” International Meeting is accessible through a competition that can be attended by composers under the age of 35 from across the world, who send one or more pieces for instrumental groups between 5 and 12 performers.  An international panel ce important composers selects three of the compositions received, that are performed during the Rondò concert season.
A new composition is commissioned to the respective composers, which will be performed at a concert during the following season. The three composers are hosted in Milan for the entire rehearsal period. The performance of the three selected scores allows composers to know the musicians of the ensemble before the composition of the new piece begins, giving them the possibility of direct and personal contact with each of them during the work of the composition.  In every edition, commissioned offer combinations between every  instrumental  groups and diverse collaborations with directors or scenographers (in the case of musical theater) choreographers and dancers, singers and vocal groups. The project is biannual because it takes place over the time frame of two years.
Application: December of every other year
