Roche Young Commissions 2021

The Commissions for 2021 Have Been Awarded to the Composers Kirsten Milenko and Alex Vaughan.

Kirsten Milenko (27) and Alex Vaughan (31), two young composers from Australia, will receive the prestigious commissions of the Roche Young Commissions program for 2021. They were selected by Wolfgang Rihm, the Artistic Director of the Lucerne Festival Academy. Yesterday, on 2 September, these talented young composers attended an official reception at Roche. Milenko and Vaughan will each write a work for orchestra, to be completed by 2021, which they will then revise and rehearse with Rihm and the Orchestra of the Lucerne Festival Academy in the summer of 2020. The world premieres of each of their works will take place as part of the 2021 Summer Festival (more).
