RESEARCH-LED PERFORMANCE. THE GUITAR IN THE WORK OF MAURICIO KAGEL,GIACOMO MANZONI AND FAUSTO ROMITELLI
From 27th to 29th June 2016, organised by the Fondazione Giorgio Cini Institute of Music in collaboration with the Orpheus Instituut, Ghent (Belgium), this workshop is addressed to musicians specialised in classical and electric guitar. The principal aim is to encourage collaboration between composers, musicologists and musicians in preparing performances based on the analysis of musical structures, the sources of the compositional process, and documentation of historic performances. Each of the three days of the workshop is divided into two sessions: the first is devoted to the creative process, aesthetic aspects and structures of the compositions; and the second focuses on performance practice. Luk Vaes will tackle Tactil and Unter Strom by Mauricio Kagel; Elena Casoli will analyse some works for classical guitar by Giacomo Manzoni and Fausto Romitelli; and Giacomo Baldelli will focus on the electric guitar repertoire, especially Trash TV Trance by Fausto Romitelli. The workshop title, Research-led Performance, refers to the mutual integration of the disciplines involved: on one hand, performance practice consolidates through the results of archive research and theoretical studies; and, on the other, methodical enquiry takes profit of the experience of performing and listening, in order to check, hone or redefine individual development. The combination of these activities generates a new and dynamic approach to research.
