Sonus Foundation for the Support of New Music and Contemporary Performing Arts issues a call for scores for composers to submit short pieces, „musical aphorisms” for a new instrument: glissonic tarogato (glissotar). Selected pieces will be recorded by Daniel Vaczi and published on our webpage, and the best pieces will be performed at a concert in April 2021 in the Hold Street Church in Budapest, Hungary.
Dániel Váczi has been working since 2016 with Tóbiás Terebessy on the development of woodwind instruments making continuous pitch (glissando). The first model is the glissotar that is a hybrid tarogato-soprano saxophone. József Tóth, one of the most important tarogato builders, gave assistance to the development.
