The composition tutors will be Philippe Manoury and Luca Francesconi. Computer music will be taught and supervised by Tom Mays, tutor at the Strasbourg Academie Superieure de Musique. The pieces will be performed by the Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart, a voice ensemble that has received worldwide acclaim for its performances of contemporary repertoire, as well as by soloists from Strasbourg Academie Superieure de Musique. The Academy is open to composers born after 01 January 1983. The course runs from 24 September to 06 October 2018 and will comprise a read-through of the scores and work with the performers (Sep 24 – 26), individual sessions with composition tutors, re-writing, masterclasses and conferences (Sep 27 – Oct 03), and rehearsals/final concerts (Oct 04 – 06). All composers’ works will be performed in concert and recorded live. A winner will be designated and will receive a commission from the Music festival, which will be published by Durand-Salabert-Eschig.
