Call for applications for a maximum of 6 participants (with scholarship) and up to 12 auditors. The "Research-led Performance" cycle resumes with a workshop for young conductors, organised by the Istituto per la Musica, coordinated by Marco Angius with the participation of soloists from the Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto, dedicated to the conducting of chamber ensembles, a formation varying in number and type of instrument that has characterized musical production since Arnold Schoenberg's Kammersymphonie (1906).

Six young conductors who have shown interest and aptitude for this repertoire will be selected by means of a call for applications. Alongside Schoenberg's pioneering composition, two works by Italian composers who established a long-distance dialogue with the Viennese master will be tackled: Serenata No. 2 by Bruno Maderna and Hölderlin: Epilogue by Giacomo Manzoni. Practical sessions will alternate with theoretical ones.
At the end of the work, some students will demonstrate the outcomes of the workshop in a public event.

Where: Fondazione Giorgio Cini - Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice - Italy
When: 13-15 March 2023
Deadline: 27 February 2023
