The composition workshops let young composers work on specific themes defined by the guest composers. Throughout the work sessions and rehearsals with artists and performers, young composers can take advantage of the experience and advice of guest composers to write and finalize a new work. At the same time, composition classes, analysis and listening sessions, and instrumental classes create new possibilities and shed a different light and on their future creations.

All works will be performed during a public presentation (subject to the agreement of the teaching team). Composers will receive stereo recordings of these presentations.
