International Rostrum of Composers results.

Not I by Polish composer Agata Zubel and So Very Strange by Icelandic composer Ulfur Hansson were selected "most worthy for worldwide broadcasting" by radio music producers participating in the International Music Council's 60th International Rostrum of Composers in Prague in May.

The annual Rostrum promotes contemporary music creation through broadcasting by fostering the exchange of performances between broadcasting organizations. The 2013 Rostrum gathered representatives from 30 national radio networks from four continents, which presented 51 works composed within the five years preceding the Rostrum.

Not I was selected in the general category as most outstanding. So Dry Strange was selected in the young composers category. In addition to the selected works, 11 other works were recommended for broadcasting and concert presentation after the Rostrum by the participating and other interested radio stations.
