Hilary Hahn launches competition to write the last piece for her encores project. Hilary Hahn has launched an online contest to choose the 27th piece for her new project, In 27 Pieces: The Hilary Hahn Encores. Twenty-six composers, including Krzysztof Penderecki, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Edgar Meyer and Nico Muhly, have already written encores for her. She will select the final work from blind submissions to her website.Hahn will include the chosen encore in her recitals during the 2012–13 season, along with 13 other encores composed for the project. The winning piece will also be recorded for release in the 2013–14 season.Submissions must be original pieces for acoustic violin and piano, of between one-and-a-half and five minutes in length. Composers have until 15 March 2012 to send Hahn a PDF and a MIDI file of their encores.
