We are happy to announce that Brechtje will be the composer of this year's competition composition. Brechtje (1993) is a Dutch composer and singer, based in Amsterdam. Known for her contagious fantasy, Brechtje crosses boundaries of genres, art disciplines and cultures. Her work is characterized by a well-balanced combination of complexity and accessibility – both challenging and inviting musician and observer. Recent compositions include chamber music, a ballet, songs and electronic tracks.
