Etchings Contemporary Music Festival in Auvillar, France
Participant composers meet each morning for private lessons and each afternoon for masterclasses where guests share their music and critique participant work. In the evening, the village is alive with food and wine from local vineyards. The fellows who study at Etchings come from around the world, traveling as far as Singapore and Argentina. The level of teaching is as high as any major international festival, but with the intimacy that allows for great attention and consideration to be given to each fellow. And fellows know they will receive an expert performance of their work: we rehearses each day with each fellow, resulting in stellar performances and lasting collaborations.
Etchings is pleased to announce the 2014 Guest Composer will be Beat Furrer.
The Guest Artist will be Garth Knox.
