Composer’s Kitchen

“Dare to do what you’ve never done before!

Since 2005, this has been the motto to welcome several generations of creators of Composer’s Kitchen, a professional composition residency in string quartet writing. Offered to four emerging composers, this unique occasion is a combination of workshop, laboratory, masterclass, and concert settings. Throughout the multi-phase process, the composers are supported by — other than Quatuor Bozzini — the presence of experienced mentors who are amongst the most important figures in new music creation.

Each edition of the Composer’s Kitchen is a chance to rigorously work in a creative, non-competitive and relaxed atmosphere. During this enriching experience, residents are encouraged to experiment beyond the limits of convention and to explore new and varied aesthetic styles in a way that their mastery in string quartet writing is strengthened to its highest degree.

Quatuor Bozzini loves cultivating these relationships with composers beyond the residency period, resulting in a rich network of collaborations. In this way, Quatuor Bozzini always strives to stay active in current trends and practices of emerging composers.

Quatuor Bozzini works in partnership with international organizations — Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Sound and Music, Gaudeamus Muziekweek, nyMusikk Norge — resulting in unique and rich exchanges between host countries.
