New music for old instruments: winners of the 2023 Ruzickova Composition Competition

Inspired by the example of Zuzana Ruzickova, one of the leading harpsichordists of the 20th century, the Ruzickova Composition Competition (founded by violinist Ada Witczyk) champions new music for period instruments. The fourth competition ran in 2023 with a judging panel that included Ada Witczyk, baroque violinist Simon Standage and festival manager Nick Hardisty.

The winning pieces were performed live at Mercato Mayfair in October 2023 and recorded, Concerto in D minor by Klaus Miehling [see YouTube], Memories of Malacuesta by Isidro Albarreal Delgado [see YouTube], and Voices of Angels by An Vedi [see YouTube]. Isidro Albarreal Delgado's work also received the audience prize.
