2017 Mozart Residency (as part of the enoa)
Ever since the curtain was first raised on the Festival d’Aix, it has always featured Mozart! The Académie du Festival d'Aix has become a key training and professional development venue for vocal coach pianists and singers wanting to develop and refine their interpretation of the Mozartian repertoire.
10 singers and 3 pianists have the opportunity to benefit from a rewarding experience with Susanna Eken, vocal professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. As a specialist in the Mozart repertoire and a familiar face at the Festival d’Aix, this peerless tutor engages with Mozart’s work by adopting a combined technical and physiological approach to the voice. Dedicated to the Austrian master but also, this year, to Haydn, this singers’ residency features a musical work directed by the talented vocal coaches pianists Ouri Bronchti and Bertrand Halary, a stage work directed by Joseph Alford, stage director, and a work on Italian diction given by Roberta Salsi, coach of Italian language.
Some work sessions (held in English) of the residency may be open to the public.
The residency will give rise to public concerts and events, in Aix-en-Provence and the surrounding area.
Educational meetings will be organised in conjunction with the Festival’s Passerelles services.
