DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 1st February 2017

 

The Peter Eötvös Foundation in Budapest (HUN) and the Royaumont Foundation (FR) offer a unique conducting masterclass, under the direction of conductors Peter Eötvös and Jean-Philippe Wurtz.

This training offers 12 young conductors to improve themselves in the practice of contemporary repertoire, through the study of two emblematic works of this repertoire:

Le Marteau sans Maître – Pierre Boulez and Messages of the late R.V. Troussova by György Kurtág. The work of Boulez, with its incredible technical difficulties, has been the source of a genuine new school of conducting, engineered by Boulez.

Kurtág’s piece is no less difficult, and calls upon conductors a huge effort in structuring the score: they will have here the great opportunity of working with the composer during a preparatory phase in Budapest.

Thanks to the partnership with the Peter Eötvös Foundation, 6 students will study the Boulez piece in Royaumont with Ensemble Linea while 6 students will study the Kurtág piece with Hungarian ensemble UMZE.

After this preliminary phase, the 2 pieces will be rehearsed and presented to the public in Royaumont, on the 9th of April.
