Centre Acanthes 2011

I’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.
