International Composition Contest
for bandoneόn "H. Band"
The "Heinrich Band International Composition Competition" is the only competition in the world dedicated to compositions for bandoneόn. It too is a further proof of the strong cultural interest that revolves around this instrument which, although it is becoming increasingly known, is often referred to the tango genre, without being appreciated the infinite potentialities that characterize it and make it suitable for many musical genres, from classical to jazz to contemporary music. This happens because the great part of the bandoneonistic repertoire has its roots in the field of rioplatense music and the contemporary research compositions for this instrument are scarce. The competition therefore collects the need of bandoneonists to emancipate the bandoneόn as an instrument solely intended for the execution of the tango genre, thus constituting a new concert repertoire able to breathe new life into current bandoneonist literature, innovating and enriching it, without denying its origins.
