Acanthes 2004

5 to 18 July 2004

 

Metz

 

The City of Metz, the Moselle Department and the Lorraine Region are welcoming the Centre Acanthes.

After Aix-en-Provence and the Chartreuse of Villeneuve-lez-Avignon, Metz is the third residence of this international academy, which has been dedicated, since 1977, to education and diffusion of contemporary musical creation. Favourite guests for 2004 are: Ircam and the Ensemble Intercontemporain.

Indeed, the main theme of the July 2004 Centre Acanthes is an introduction to computer technologies. Around a hundred young professional musicians will receive theoretical and practical tuition in composition and interpretation. The various composition and analysis workshops will be directed by two composers, Jonathan Harvey and Philippe Manoury, whose creative approach has been considerably influenced by Ircam’s technologies. They will present some of their own works
in detail, and they will also guide the student composers in bringing their own new works to performance. These workshops have been one of the strong points of the Centre Acanthes for a number of years. The works will be performed by the soloists of the Ensemble Intercontemporain working closely with technicians and musical assistants from Ircam
