Oficina de composição cross.art + Marcos Balter
A Escola de Música e Belas Artes e a Universidade Federal do Paraná (Curitiba PR), com o apoio do Goethe Institut Curitiba, realizará um Workshop para Jovens Compositores com o ensemble cross.art (Stuttgart, Alemanha) mediado pelo compositor convidado Marcos Balter (Columbia College Chicago, Estados-Unidos). Quatro jovens compositores foram selecionados e comissionados a escrever uma obra para trio clássico: violino, violoncelo e/ou piano. Durante o mês de agosto de 2013, os compositores ensaiarão suas obras com o trio e sob a orientação do compositor Marcos Balter. A execução das obras se dará em concerto próprio no dia 23 de Agosto no SESC Paço da Liberdade (será realizada gravação em áudio das obras executadas).

Following the principle that a music festival should not only present concerts, but also develop the educational aspect, the Biennial Music Today presents to the public on Friday the composition workshop pieces, alongside with lectures and debates, this workshop was a vast discussion panel with many exchange possibilities among professionals in different levels of development, as well as the public in general. The “Winter Seminar of Contemporary Music in Curitiba” took place also during this week’s activities as part of the workshop.
The Composition Workshop was held for four young composers – Guilherme Bertissolo (Brazil), Morgan Krauss (United States), Paul McGuire (Ireland) and Rodrigo Bussad (Brazil) – They were selected from more than forty candidates from around the world, and have worked for a week together with the ensemble cross.art under 2nd Biennial’s Resident Composer, Marcos Balter.
