composition WORKSHOP

During the festival there will be a composition workshop in which students will elaborate and work on a piece or movement for the ensemble Klexos or ICTUS that will be premiered during the festival in concert. For this purpose, the composition students will have classes with the Italian composer Alessandro Perini, as well as reading sessions with the ensemble they wish to work with.

The instrumentation is free within the possibilities of each ensemble. Namely:

  • Klexos: up to 4 saxophonists (sx, sx, sx, sx, sx)
  • ICTUS: clarinet, violin, cello, guitar (cl, vl, cll, guit)

It will not be possible to choose an instrumentation that involves both ensembles. It is possible not to use the complete instrumentation (for example, a clarinet and guitar duet). The maximum time limit is 10 minutes. The pieces may contain multimedia or performative elements.

The registration fee is 200€ and will entitle you to at least:

  • 2 sessions with Alessandro Perini.
  • 2 reading sessions with the ensemble.
  • Premiere of the piece/movement at the festival.
  • Participation and attendance to all activities, concerts or round tables held during the festival.
