Acanthes 2004

5 to 18 July 2004



Instrumental workshops

works with electronics - works without electronics

Please contact ACDA to obtain copies of unpublished works

Flute: Sophie Cherrier
Clarinet: Alain Damiens
Cello: Anssi Karttunen
Percussion: Michel Cerutti

These workshops are intended for instrumentalists who wish to perfect their performance of the contemporary repertoire, both with and without electronics.

The participants will work intensively with teachers and musical assistants from Ircam (Serge Lemouton, Manuel Poletti, and Benjamin Thigpen).

They should submit with their application form a programme based mainly on the works of the guest composers but also including works from the contemporary repertoire as a whole. They should ensure they know these works well before the start of the course.
