About Performance Today
An in-depth examination of performing classical music
This residency will explore performing classical music by looking at its origins: instruments, performance practices, settings, circumstances when it was created, and how it can be presented most effectively in today’s time.
Program dates: September 22, 2014 - October 24, 2014
The Banff Musicians in Residence program provides emerging and established artists from all musical backgrounds with a period of focused time to concentrate on artistic development.
Residents are given the opportunity to expand their artistic insights through interaction with program peers and visiting artists.
In addition, those interested in additional professional development can choose to apply for the role of Artistic Associate and act as the liaison between faculty and musicians for the duration of the program.
Musicians have always been inspired by previous generations of composers when creating new works. Be it form, melodic material or harmonic progression, the origins of contemporary music often lie in the works of the past.
This unique and innovative residency will build on this tradition by using major classical works to stimulate the creation of new material in the singer-songwriting genre.
Portfoliois a Sound and Music artist development programme. Sound and Music’s Portfolio scheme provides a key development opportunity for composers to create new work with and for some of the UK’s leading ensembles and presenters of new music. Portfolio enables them to develop their portfolio of compositions and gain vital artistic and practical insight and experience in working with professional ensembles and presenting organisations, and delivering new work to public audiences.
