[Plateforme Ulysse] Masterclass de direction d’orchestre par Peter Eötvös et Jean-Philippe Wurtz – Fondation Royaumont : Le Marteau sans Maître, Pierre Boulez | Messages of the late R.V. Troussova, György Kurtág

CONDUCTING MASTERCLASS 2017 : Le                Marteau sans Maître - Pierre Boulez | Messages of the late                R.V. Troussova - György Kurtág

The Peter Eötvös and Royaumont Foundations offer a unique conducting masterclass, under the direction of conductors Peter Eötvös and Jean-Philippe Wurtz. This training offers 12 young conductors to improve themselves in the practice of contemporary repertoire, through the study of two emblematic works of this repertoire: Le Marteau sans Maître – Pierre Boulez and Messages of the late R.V. Troussova by György Kurtag. The work of Boulez, with its incredible technical difficulties, has been the source of a genuine new school of conducting, engineered by Boulez. Kurtag’s piece is no less difficult, and calls upon conductors a huge effort in structuring the score: they will have here the great opportunity of working with the composer during a preparatory phase in Budapest. Thanks to the partnership with the Peter Eötvös Foundation, 6 students will study the Boulez piece in Royaumont with Ensemble Linea while 6 students will study the Kurtag piece with Hungarian ensemble UMZE. After this preliminary phase, the 2 pieces will be rehearsed and presented to the public in Royaumont, on the 9 th of April.
