We also support Wien Modern.
Since 2002.

Wien Modern is a contemporary music festival that takes place every autumn at various venues in Vienna. It provides a fitting framework for the premiere of the Erste Bank Composition Award through Klangforum Wien.

Since 1989, Erste Bank has annually awarded a prize to an exceptional young composer. The composition award is part of our collaboration with Klangforum Wien, which we support as the main sponsor. In addition to the piece’s world premiere at Wien Modern, the Erste Bank Composition Award guarantees further performances by Klangforum Wien and a CD recording by the label Kairos.
