Résidence musique de chambre - Hôtel Maynier d'Oppède, Festival d'Aix-en-Provence 2016

2018 chamber music residency

July 2 2018 to July 14 2018
The residency is open to established string quartets and piano trios whose average age does not exceed 30 years old on 1st January 2018

Violinists, András Keller (Keller Quartet) and David Alberman (Arditti Quartet, London Symphony Orchestra), and violist Tabea Zimmermann combine their talents as artists and tutors for the benefit of young ensembles – string quartets and piano trios – seeking to refine their approach to all repertoires, from classic to contemporary music.

This residency is the ideal opportunity to open up to contemporary creation and get to grips with new languages by working alongside today's composers.   

It also offers the opportunity for outreach work in order to raise the public’s awareness of how chamber music is listened to and practised. The ensembles will also benefit from wise advice on career development. This specialist expertise covers all the practical aspects that an ensemble might expect to deal with (self-promotional communication, development, dissemination, etc.).

Some work sessions (held in English) may be open to the public.
The residency will give rise to public concerts and events in June and July, in Aix-en-Provence and the surrounding area. Educational meetings will be organised in conjunction with the Festival’s Passerelles services.
