2016 Mozart Residency
The Académie du Festival d'Aix is one of the key places for cultivating Mozartian interpretation. This residency owes a great deal to Susanna Eken, voice teacher at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, who takes a technical and psychological approach to the individual singing voice. The residency is completed by drama work supervised by either the choreographer Leah Hausman, and the vocal coach-pianists Ouri Bronchti et Bertrand Halary accompany the artists in their development of the Mozart repertoire.
Twelve singers and three vocal coach-pianists will be selected for this residency.
Some work sessions may be open to the public.
The residency will give rise to several public performances.
All working sessions are in English.
Master classes and accommodation are covered by the Festival as well as meal allowances.
Travel expenses are to be covered by the participants.
