Hope this is the right place to post this, I'm sort of new here. Was just wondering what people here thought about neo-classical, minimalist solo instrumental music? I find all the competitions and opportunities in the way of composition and performance are for people that can compose for chamber orchestras or compose lengthy pieces of (broadly) traditional classical music. I started up a composers competition focussed toward more contemporary and (dare i say) self-taught composers and it was a resounding failure. Do you think we neo-classical composers should just stick to writing film soundtracks or can you see a place for performance and even for competitions and recognition of this style?
