    Panorama des œuvres du séminaire de composition 

    Les jeunes compositeurs n’ont pas la tâche facile, surtout lorsqu’ils écrivent pour orchestre. Ils imaginent les choses les plus fabuleuses, mais si personne ne les joue, comment savoir ce que ça donne ? Le séminaire de composition de la LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY tente de remédier à cela. C’est Wolfgang Rihm, le nouveau directeur de l’académie, qui en a eu l’idée, en 2016, lui qui connaît bien les obstacles auxquels se heurte le débutant et les limites de l’enseignement de conservatoire : « Au séminaire, les compositeurs peuvent tout de suite essayer leurs œuvres avec les anciens stagiaires de l’académie, explique-t-il. Dans les conservatoires, ça prend bien plus de temps, de nombreux professeurs d’instrument exigent d’avoir les partitions six mois avant le concert… » Parmi les quelque cent cinquante postulants au stage, Rihm a choisi en priorité « ceux qui ont déjà produit un travail original ». C’est après une phase intensive d’échanges et de fignolage de leurs partitions qu’ils présenteront le résultat à ce concert.

    Ensemble des LUCERNE FESTIVAL ALUMNI

    Ever since it was founded in 2003, the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY has provided training to more than 1,000 highly talented young instrumentalists, conductors, and composers from around the world. To date the alumni have included such renowned artists as the JACK Quartet and the conductors Pablo Heras-Casado and Kevin John Edusei, as well as many musicians who today are members of internationally accomplished orchestras,  who perform in chamber music and experimental projects, or who teach at conservatories. A large portion of them remain closely associated with the Festival. Selected former Academy students come back to Lucerne regularly as LUCERNE FESTIVAL ALUMNI. They enrich the programming through performances in the field of contemporary music, in the 40min series, or in productions by LUCERNE FESTIVAL YOUNG; they are moreover available to provide  help and advice to current Academy students. Supported by the Alumni platform, they keep in contact with each other in order to execute their own projects around the world. The result is a uniquely international network of young musicians. For their first project together, in the 2013-14 season the Alumni gave four world premieres involving the theme “Music at Risk” in New York, London, Beijing, Zurich, and Lucerne. During the past summer they participated in another “marathon of premieres” in Lucerne, and in June 2016 an ensemble of Alumni performed as part of the NY Phil Biennial in a three-part concert series, “Ligeti Forward,” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, which was conducted by Alan Gilbert. This year the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ALUMNI’s projects include a tour with the Swiss jazz singer  Andreas Schaerer performing his project “The Big Wig.”
