The workshop aims to encourage the collaboration of composers, musicologists, instrumentalists and technicians in performances based on an in-depth study of the musical structures, the sources of the compositional process and the documentation of historical performances. It will be held in a context of research in order to convey an experience of compositional thinking, poetics and specific instrumental techniques.
