Centre Acanthes 2011

Centre Acanthes Poster 2011I’m in Metz, France, for two weeks for the Centre Acanthes series of work­shops and lec­tures, which will in­clude work­shops of my new piece for flute, sop­rano sax­o­phone, voice and piano, Small Atlas, the first of which is to­morrow morning. The players are Mario Caroli (flute), Pierre-Stéphane Meugé (sax­o­phone), Donatienne Michel-Dansac (voice) and Vincent Leterme (piano). Unsuk Chin, Philippe Hurel and Oscar Strasnoy are on the com­pos­i­tion fac­ulty, while Mario Caroli and Andrew Zolinsky are giving flute and piano mas­ter­classes re­spect­ively. Tonight, Alexandre Tharaud gives a piano re­cital of works by Domenico Scarlatti, Thierry Pécou, Oscar Strasnoy, Gérard Pesson and Mauricio Kagel.

My stay in Metz is sup­ported by a bursary from ADAMI and SACEM.
