Workshop's Structure

This course is addressed to any musician who is aiming to develop his skills in conducting an ensemble, accompanying a soloist, and who is interested in learning the principles of concertation as well as tips for rehearsing. Six days of lessons, playing and conducting will be the core of this course. 

The main topics will consist in:

One-by-one and group lessons, for the basic gesture;
Formal and harmonic analysis, for conducting aims;
Conducting rehearsals with piano;
Free attendance at the Francesco Telli lecture on Musical Analysis;
Participation in ensemble (if necessary);
Conducting rehearsals with ensemble;
Possibility to conduct in one of the two final concerts;
Participants will be selected on curriculum basis. Any student could be requested to perform in the ensemble or, if desired, to perform as soloist: this will not prevent from the active participation to the course. Be a member of the ensemble is part of the workshop and it will develop a continue feedback between the students, especially between those who are playing and those who are conducting. The ensemble orchestration and the repertoire will be defined after the deadline.
