COMPOSITION

19 JULY / 30 JULY

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Course will be a workshop with daily sessions.

At the start of the Course, active students must present an original composition (already written, or sketched in outline) for a solo instrument or a chamber ensemble with a maximum of six instruments, including: string quartet, flute (flute in G), clarinet (or bass clarinet). 

As work during the Course proceeds, the piece will be rehearsed by musicians “in residence”: the Quartetto Prometeo, including flutist Matteo Cesari and clarinetist Paolo Ravaglia. If possible, the composition will be performed at the final concert.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

The candidate must present the following materials with the online application form:

1. The scores of one or two of their recent compositions
2. A transcription for string quartet of the “sonata” K. 24 (L. 495) by Domenico Scarlatti.

Scores for these pieces must be received by the Secretary’s Office of the Accademia Chigiana, together with the application form, and payment of the entrance-examination fee by May 31st. The Accademia Chigiana will communicate to all candidates the result of the selection made by the examining commission.
