Carla Magnan wins the 2020 Earplay Donald Aird Composers Competition.

I am so happy to announce that I have won the prize 2020 Earplay Donald Aird Composers Competition (San Francisco, USA) with my work MIRAGES for cello and piano, written for Giovanni Ricciardi and Massimiliano Damerini! In this strange period with so many missed concerts, this prize is award even more special. This is the comment of the jury: “Ms. Magnan’s work was selected from among an exceptionally strong field of candidates. MIRAGES, Ms. Magnan’s composition chosen as the winner of the 2020 Earplay Donald Aird Composers Competition, is a set of four pieces for cello and piano. The pieces, MIRAGES I, II, III and IV, composed in 2018, are inspired by the optical phenomenon of the same name, a visual perception of distorted images of distant objects, which seem suspended in the air or turned upside down like reflections from a mirror, while what the images appear to represent is determined by the interpretive faculties of the human mind.”
