Course description: Composition

Participants have the opportunity to present their own work to the teachers, and discuss with them any related detail (individual and group lessons).

Throughout the duration of the course, participants may work with one or two instrumentalists from the Ticino Musica masterclasses (see the list of courses here) on a series of miniatures (brief pieces for solo instrument or duo). All miniatures may be discussed during the composition lessons, and will be presented on a final concert that each year takes place in a new, exciting, and stimulating place.
