9 Aprile 2024 ensemble

FontanaMIXensemble is pleased to present its 2024’s Composers/Conductors Workshop, whose objective is to encourage and enhance the professional figure of the composer/conductor, a role in which the conducting sensitivity is deeply intertwined with the composer’s intuition, in the same way as the research in writing enriches and gives meaning to the musical performance and interpretation. 

While Richard Strauss and Gustav Mahler built the conducting formations in the modern era, figures like Maderna, Boulez or Bernstein represented, during the second half of the 20th century, outstanding examples of personalities for whom composing and conducting were the manifestation of a single artistic expression. 

With this unique workshop, FontanaMIXensemble aims to contribute to create a lively discussion in which young artists will have the possibility to work together with the ensemble’s musicians in a mutual exchange of creative experiences and professional growth. 

Three composers/conductors will be selected to each write a new piece for the FontanaMIXensemble. 

The instrumentation and submission deadline will be communicated to the selected applicants due to Saturday 15th June 2024. The workshop will take place from the 4th to the 6th October 2024. During these days, each selected composer/conductor will have the possibility to rehearse his/her own work and a piece from the contemporary music repertoire. A final concert with the three participants will take place at the end of the workshop. This concert will be part of the FontanaMIXensemble’s 2024 season. Participation to the workshop is free of charge. The ensemble will host the three selected applicants in Bologna during the workshop and concert. Travel expenses will be covered by the participants themselves.
