The Marsyas Trio is excited to be working with these four composers: Jordan Hirst, Anselm McDonnell, Sam Messer, and Yfat Soul Zisso!
Every year, the Vale of Glamorgan Festival brings together exceptional artists and composers from the UK and further afield to celebrate the wealth of work being created across the world today.
In 2017, we are launching the Peter Reynolds Composer Studio, named in memory of a composer, long-time friend and supporter of the festival and run in partnership with Cardiff University School of Music.
The programme offers anyone looking to pursue a career in composition the opportunity to work with some of the composers and ensembles taking part in the 2017 festival and tap into a rich resource of expertise. Participants will be offered:
- Direct access to a range of composers
- The opportunity to write for a leading professional ensemble
- A performance and recording of their work
- Free access to Vale of Glamorgan Festival concerts and events
- Excellent networking opportunities
The programme is divided into two modules and applicants can choose to take part in one or both.
Module 1 running from Friday 19 – Monday 22 May 2017 and featuring Grand Band, a six piano “supergroup” based in New York City
Module 2 running from Tuesday 23 – Friday 26 May 2017 and featuring The Marsyas Trio, comprising flute, cello and piano
Over each four day module, participants will take part in a series of seminars, workshops and tutorials led by a team of composers including Graham Fitkin, Rob Fokkens, John Metcalf, Steph Power, Guto Puw, Hilary Tann and Huw Watkins. This will culminate with a performance and recording of participants’ work by the featured ensemble.
