The course is open to professional flutists, conservatory students of all levels, chamber music ensembles dedicated to the contemporary repertoire, and classically trained instrumentalists of all kinds, with no age limits and who are eager to play outside the box, to experience an intensive week dedicated to contemporary music and improvisation inspired by visual arts.
Camilla Hoitenga will tutor her only 2022 in-person masterclass at CdM San Michele, in a beautiful setting among the hills of Piedmont, in collaborations with musicians from the ensemble Collettivo_21 and Italian visual artist Mirco Marchelli, taking benefit of the immersive experience, locally sourced food and Spa.
Special feature of the course will be a workshop on improvisation inspired by visual art, held in collaboration with Mirco Marchelli, that would focus on the creation of your own music in the context of visual art.
The workshop is open to flutists and musicians both expert and new to the improvisation practice, providing a “safe” and inspiring environment in which to study; Camilla has decades of experience working with painters and sculptors and playing for their exhibitions and is eager to share the methods she’s developed for creating “Parallel Musik”. Joining her to work with you directly is the Italian artist Mirco Marchelli, who will inspire us not only with his artwork and a visit to his studio, but also by sharing his own creative processes — some of which also involve music.
Moreover, the course will offer the opportunity to go deeper into your favourite solo and chamber repertoires, with one-on-one coaching with Camilla Hoitenga: flutists can do a “deep dive” with Camilla with flute technique & and all musicians can be inspired by her refreshing insights into interpretation and performance practice.
A final concert, organized by Foresty International Music Festival, will allow the students a closing experience, concluding the course with a practical application of the improvisation-inspired-by-art skills learned and deepened during the week.
