Musical Encounters in Provence

Next workshop:

July 21-28, 2018

The workshop is designed for non professional musicians from good to high level, with considerable experience of chamber music.

Coached sessions

  • Each participant takes part in two coached sessions a day, practicing two pieces in two different formations.
  • The two pieces must be prtacticed before the workshop, so that the coaches can concentrate on the musicality of the group rather than on individual technique.
  • Participants thus have the opportunity to study in depth the pieces they have prepared.

Groups and pieces

  • The groups will be created by the organising comittee, and you will be notified about two months before the workshop.
  • Pre-exisiting groups are possible and welcome.For one of the coached sessions, however, the group will be split up and join other groups.
  • The choice of the pieces is done in agreement with the participants and the organisers. Suggestions, in particular of lesser known pieces, are welcome.

lWorkshop for contemporary music

  • A daily workshop on contemporary music is open to all interested participants.
  • Led by a specialist of contemporay music, it usually profits from a visit by the composer of the pieces played during the workshop.

Free playing

  • Partipicants have the opportunity for free playing before each coached session (1 hour in the morning, 1.5 hours in the afternoon), together with other participants and the coaches

Further events

  • Public rehearsals of the studied pieces
  • Welcome party on Sunday evening
  • End of workshop dinner
