Four world premieres at Royaumont
IEMA – DE
Last Sunday the beautiful Royaumont foundation abbaye welcomed the work of four young composers, chosen by two ULYSSES network partners: the International Ensemble Modern Academy (IEMA) and the Royaumont Foundation.
Each of the four composers—Martin Grütter and Birke Bertelsmeier, selected by the Modern Ensemble, Clara Iannotta and Gabriele Vanoni, two former students from the Voix Nouvelles composition session selected by the Royaumont Foundation—wrote a piece for an ensemble. They all previously benefited from a long workshop residency in Frankfort, during which they worked with the IEMA, where they had the chance to perfect their orchestra writing knowledge, and create these four new music pieces (more information here
