Contest: Compose the Memorable Musical Fragment in The Cellist’s Notebook

We are pleased to announce a contest to accompany our upcoming Cello Book Club meeting with author Kittie Lambton to discuss her book, The Cellist’s Notebook.

Contest

The contest is to see who can compose the most fitting musical fragment of Leni’s cello and piano piece that Emily discovers in the notebook. Kittie Lambton describes the work as:

“the little melody that triggers memory and is so very important in my book. This need not be a long-winded music composition but just a fragment. Just enough to be timeless and generational.”

How to Enter the Contest

  • Create a new, original work.
  • The entry may be a fragment or an entire piece to fit the above description and the story in The Cellist’s Notebook.
  • Instrumentation: cello and piano.
  • Send a PDF score and MP3 recording. The recording can be digital or played on cello and piano.
  • Submissions will be accepted from the next book club meeting (18 July 2021) through 11:59 PM, New York time, 15 August 2021.
  • Send your PDF and MP3 files to us at curator(at)cellomuseum.org
