Greg Caffrey wins Italian composition prize
Takemitsu’s Dream, a 2008 composition for solo guitar by Belfast composer Gregg Caffrey, has won joint first prize for its composer in Concurso Counterpoint, an Italian chamber music competition, alongside Paj by Saman Samadi, and Can Bilir’s Hypertext II for solo flute.
Takemitsu’s Dream, which incorporates musical techniques and atmospheres from Toru Takemistu’s work, will be performed in New York City’s Jan Hus Church on 27 January 2013, alongside Bilir’s Hypertext II.
Takemitsu’s Dream is available on a Cactus Records album, ‘Ogden/Caffrey - First Construction in Nylon’, which features performances by Australian guitarist Craig Ogden.
