The two-week-long Composer Seminar supervised by Wolfgang Rihm enables a more intense dialogue between young composers and international young performers. Wolfgang Rihm invites 2017 Composer-in-Residence Michel van der Aa and Dieter Ammann to join him to discuss new scores and recordings by upcoming young composers, to give individual one-to-one lessons, and to supervise rehearsals. The composers will be joined by an international ensemble of LUCERNE FESTIVAL ALUMNI to prepare the compositions for a final performance. The conductors of the Master Class in Conducting will also be involved in the seminar.
Application for the Composer Seminar 2018 begins in September.
