Not so much as a “past event”, Bite Matters is our ongoing showcase of short contemporary works written for solo instruments. This page is constantly being updated with out latest Bites.
All our Bites have been carefully selected amongst the submissions we received from our Bite Matters: Call-for-scores. We pride ourselves in being a partner of Sound and Music’s Fair Access Principles. We don’t just welcome all composers regardless of their backgrounds, but we also provide individual feedback to every composer who has submitted us their scores.
“Thank you so much for the [recording], what a fantastic player Tamaki is! It’s such a pleasure to hear her.“

“Thanks so much for playing my piece! Beautiful free performance, which is exactly what I was after!“

“I’m very happy to hear that and thank you so much for this opportunity . . . amazing job . . . very interesting and rewarding to hear different interpretations!”
– Jakob Thonander Glans (Composer)
“I just listened to the recording, everything is so beautifully done! I am very happy with the outcome of this . . .
I would be happy to collaborate with you in the future.“

“The recordings are fantastic! Beth did a great job with performing and the recording is top-notch!”

“Most calls for scores barely inform the participants about the winners, so for me having feedback even when not being selected is really greatly appreciated.”
“Until now of all the [submissions] I have made, they have never given me so many details [in their feedback]!!”
“There can be typos, because of the hastily written score; thanks for finding one of them! :)”
“Thank you so very much for your email . . . I will make revisions based on your notes.”
“Thanks so much for your reply and comments. Not being a flutist, fingering tips and comments are very helpful!”
