Call for Scores

During the Darmstadt Summer Course 2023 Lucas Fels, Mariel Roberts (cello tutors) and Hans Thomalla (composition tutor) will offer a workshop for cellists and composers. Composers selected for this project will work together with the Summer Course cellists on a short cello solo piece.

These selected pieces will be workshopped in the Cello Studio with Mariel Roberts and Lucas Fels, but also presented by the composer/cellist teams at group sessions with all workshop participants, where materials, notation, as well as general compositional questions will be discussed. The pieces will be shared with the public at a final presentation.

Participants of the Composition Studio are asked to submit a PDF file of ONE existing composition for cello solo for this workshop by ⏰ July 1 2023. (Works can be for cello solo only. For logistical reasons no live electronics, fixed media, or cello + other instruments possible.) If pieces are longer than 10 minutes, the tutors reserve the right to only work on parts of the piece.

The workshop tutors will select composers for active participation. It might also be possible to participate passively as a listener. Please ask the tutors directly on site if this is okay.
