Tuesday, November 1, 2005

Bozzini Quartet is presenting the second edition of the Composer’s Kitchen from May 1st to May 6th 2006 in Montréal (Canada). The event will be comprised of readings, discussions, coaching, presentations and a final concert. The Composer’s Kitchen is focused on string quartets and writing for strings. Participating composers are invited to show pieces, ideas, concepts, ask questions and listen to their own and their colleague’s music. Bozzini Quartet and two mentor-composers (Jean Lesage, Montréal / Martin Arnold, Toronto) will work with the participants in an informal yet intensive atmosphere.

Bozzini Quartet is dedicated to the emerging generation of Canadian composers, and the Composer’s Kitchen is open to Canadian composers and composers living in Canada. A participation fee of 300$ CAN is required if chosen upon confirmation of participation. Travel and lodging have to be organized by the participant.

Deadline for applying is February 10th, 2006
