The Clements Prize 2023

20 January 2023

Conway Hall's bi-annual prize for composers

Conway Hall Sunday Concerts is pleased to invite young composers to submit a work for piano trio to The Clements Prize 2023. Up to 8 submissions will be selected, and will be performed by the Fidelio Trio at the final round in Conway Hall’s Main Hall at 6.30pm on 5 November 2023.

The winner of the first prize will receive £3,000, presented by Conway Hall’s Director of Music.

Alfred J. Clements (1858-1938) was the organiser and secretary of the South Place Sunday Concerts (predecessor of Conway Hall Sunday Concerts) from their inception in 1887 until his death. In the first half of the twentieth century the competition bearing his name encouraged the composition of new chamber works, establishing a tradition which set Conway Hall right at the centre of British contemporary music.

Scores submitted for previous competitions from the Conway Hall Archive will also be available via the Conway Hall website and a selection exhibited before the final round of the competition.
