 Music Gardens Foundation
Summary:Summer Course for Composers
Deadline: 31 May 2018
Date Posted: 22 February 2018
Details: The Music Gardens Foundation is pleased to invite young composers (no age limit!) from all over the world to participate in the 2018 edition of the International Summer Course for Composers SYNTHETIS, which will be held in Radziejowice (near Warsaw, Poland) between July 29 and August 10, 2018.

The participants of this year’s edition of the Course will have an opportunity to attend lectures and individual meetings with such renowned composers as Chen Yi (China/USA), Brigitte Muntendorf (Austria), Ondřej Adámek (Czech Republic) and Johannes Kreidler (Germany), as well as the Course’s artists-in-residence: members of the E-MEX Ensemble (Germany). At the SYNTHETIS 2018 final concert, these talented artists will perform some of the works composed during the Course.

Traditionally, the SYNTHETIS events will be held at the Radziejowice Palace - a beautiful complex situated 50 km from Warsaw. The venue, surrounded by a picturesque landscape and originally dating back to the 17th century, thanks to its unique atmosphere has become a work facility for artists, writers, musicians and painters. Its intimate character provides excellent conditions to cre- ate both highly cooperative environment and creativity-enhancing atmosphere.

SYNTHETIS, created and directed by Zygmunt Krauze, is a successful reactivation of the le- gendary composition courses initiated in 1980 by the Polish Society for Contemporary Music. The key objective of the Course is to allow each and every participant not only to develop his or her artistic skills, but also to work in an environment where exchange of experience is essential.

Deadline for application is May 31.
