Conducting teachers: Julius Kalmar, Romolo Gessi, Giovanni Pacor. Opera Singing teachers: Domenico Balzani, Aris Christofellis. Final events for selected participants. Application deadline: 2015 July 22nd
The course, organized in co-operation with the EUROPEAN CONDUCTING ACADEMY, is aimed at conductors and singers who want to study and improve their technique and interpretation by analysing and resolving the various inherent problems. The course will be organized so that the pieces can be studied both theoretically and practically on the piano and with the orchestra, in order to obtain the staging of an operatic performance.
Each student can choose whether to study one or both the operas (Le Nozze di Figaro – Il Barbiere di Siviglia). The best students will be included in the final concert.
Programme: the course will focus on Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro and Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia. The study programme for singers and conductors will progress individually on the piano, collectively with orchestral & stage rehearsals and, towards the end, with a final staging of the studied Operas.
Admission: singers and conductors of all nationalities and all ages can take part in these courses.
Course fees:
Conductors – € 900.00
