        Last year the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival
        brought Luis de Pablo iver from Spain. He recounted that
        a similar thing was happening in Spanish contemporary music.
        Commissions for chamber/orchestral music were available
        for pieces between 8/10 mins and 18/20 mins. I'm not sure
        if this is still current policy.
