In the frame of the ULYSSES Network, Foundation Royaumont -Voix Nouvelles offers, with 2 renowned partners – Ircam (FR) and Aldeburgh Music (UK), a journey for young performers who will form together the ULYSSES Ensemble.
Each partner will propose to the 15 selected performers to work on a specific repertoire.
After previous stops at Ircam in Paris in June and Aldeburgh Music in July, the final stop in the 2017 Ulysses Ensemble journey will be part of the Voix Nouvelles Academy at the Royaumont Foundation.
Here the ensemble will work on a range of contemporary repertoire, from Ligeti’s well-known Chamber Concerto, to Raphaël Cendo “Corps”, piano concerto with soloist Wilhem Latchoumia, and to a new commission from young composer Eiko Tsukamoto. Conductor Jean-Phillipe Wurtz will conduct the ensemble through a week of rehearsals
