We are delighted to announce a 8-month long composition mentorship program
led by David Moliner, renowned composer and international percussion soloist.
It is meant to address advanced student composers, emergent young composers
or advanced composers who want to work actively on the percussion world to
enhance their technical skills premiering their works at the Philharmonie
Berlin (Kammersaal) by David Moliner.
The objective of this mentorship program is to promote marimba as a
concertante instrument, establishing 6 new premieres into marimba
repertory. The works will be premised on the influence of the music of Johann
Sebastian Bach and Iannis Xenakis, both pioneer composers. This workshop
program has the aim to globally emphasize and diffuse selected composers
works through a concert in Philharmonie Berlin in June 2024 as well as
meetings with classical/contemporary music promoters in Musikverein
Vienna offices. These selected composers will have the opportunity to publish
the works in Universal Edition for one year. Of these, 2 selected composers
will receive the scodo "Professional" subscription for one year free of charge.
The remaining 4 will receive a voucher for a free submission via scodo and a
discounted "Professional" subscription.
6 advanced student composers will be selected around the world. This 6
composers will be tutored by David Moliner in 7 monthly individual-collective
online meetings where they will be guided through different technical sections
of percussion such as: Theoretical Approaches of Percussion, Percussion
Techniques, Percussion History Writing, Percussion Historical Solo Works,
Xenakis music influence as well as Composition Individual Lessons. One
collective meeting will take place at the Musikverein offices. This encounter
will offer plenty of opportunities for professional networking and establishing
meaningful international and professional friendships.
A concert is planned at the Philharmonie Berlin during the end of June 2024
(exact date to be announced). The concert will feature also major concert
promoters from Germany, Austria and Switzerland concert halls to meet
current emerging composers.
