Cello Composition Workshop

Workshop with selection process

For participants of the composition and cello courses

Application deadline: 15 June 2014

 

During the Darmstadt Summer Course 2014 Lucas Fels (cello tutor), Brian Ferneyhough (composition tutor) and Yuval Shaked (tutor Seminar Analysis, Aesthetics & Theory) will offer a workshop for cellists and composers. Composers chosen for this project will work together with the Summer Course cellists on either short new or already existing cello solo pieces.

 

Participants of the composition courses were asked to submit a PDF file of ONE existing composition for cello solo OR a sketch of a new composition planned for this workshop by 15 June 2014.


The three workshop tutors will select composers for active participation. Those pieces that were only submitted as a sketch must be finished until the first day of the Summer Course (2nd August 2014) and performance material must be provided.

 

The chosen pieces will be rehearsed in Darmstadt by the cello students, introduced in a common workshop where string playing techniques, notation as well as general compositional questions will be discussed. Results are supposed to be presented in a workshop concert.
