The Peter Eötvös Contemporary Music Foundation announces a workshop for conductors focusing on chamber music between 17-23 February 2020, in Budapest (Hungary). Selected active conductors will have the possibility to work on Fabián Panisello’s Chamber Concerto and the Verklärte Nacht by Arnold Schönberg.

Fabián Panisello, Argentinian-Spanish composer and conductor, is internationally known on the contemporary music stage for the high quality of his work. In the words of Karlheinz Stockhausen: “full of ideas, intense and bursting with energy (…) I am very happy to see that the spirit of Webern continues to live in a changed world”. Fabián is the director and founder of PluralEnsemble and professor of composition at the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía in Madrid.

As this workshop is part of the foundation’s Mentoring Program there will be new chamber pieces written for the workshop by 2 mentored composers of the foundation. The workshop offers working sessions with Peter Eötvös, Fabián Panisello, Gregory Vajda and the two mentored composers.

The call is open for conductors of all nationalities.

The course is suitable for advanced students and professionals with special interest in contemporary music repertoire.
