The Quatuor Bozzini will give an intensive workshop on composing for strings from August 25 - September 1 2015 in Montreal. Hosted by Concordia Univeristy, the workshop is intended for students who are in undergraduate or graduate composition programs, or who have recently graduated.
The goals of the workshop are to improve technical skills for contemporary writing for strings and string quartet, and to provide a supportive environment for visionary compositional ideas.
Those accepted to the workshop will be given composition exercises as a starting point for the week’s work, which they will be expected to prepare in advance. Finished works for string quartet are not required by the start of the course. A public presentation will be held at the end of the week to present work done during the workshop.
The participation fee is CAN $750. Participants will be expected to arrange their own travel and accommodation. The program will take place at the Molson Pavillion at Concordia University in downtown Montreal.
