Our valued member and composer Johan de Meij’s latest work “Fifty Shades of E” has been awarded 1st Prize in the 6th International Composition Contest “City of Muro 2017” on Dec. 5th 2016. The Jury, consisting of Carlo Pirola (Conservatory Giuseppe Verdi - Milan), Voro Garcia (Conservatory of Music - Valencia) and Francisco José Gallego Martinez (Conservatory Mestre Molins - Quart de Poblet) were unanimous in their decision.
It is the second time this year that De Meij has been awarded a prestigious prize: in May, his composition “Echoes of San Marco” was the winner of the 30th Edition of the International Composition Competition in Corciano – Italy.Fifty Shades of E is a musical expedition to discover the many shades of the note E. Throughout the work, the note E occupies the centre stage; it runs through the various movements like a centrifugal axis. The E is observed from all sides, in all its tonal functions and guises.
