The "International Hanns Eisler Scholarship of the City of Leipzig" will be awarded again in 2024. This is the sixth time that the City of Music Leipzig has set an example of living remembrance of Hanns Eisler, one of the most important composers of the 20th century, who was born in Leipzig in 1898. The scholarship is part of a composer-in-residence programme that provides for a composition and study residency in Leipzig. The programme is intended to create a platform for the further development and promotion of New Music. The programme is conceived and organized by Eisler-Haus Leipzig e. V. in cooperation with the Cultural Office of the City of Leipzig.
