Marco Fusi Project

Compositional approaches and instrumental techniques: the exploration of string instruments in contemporary music.

 

In the course of the last few decades, violin technique has undertaken a significative expansion: extreme sonorities, unusual instrumental approaches, complex and innovative notational systems are at the core of aesthetic, compositional and performative explorations that are developed by today’s musicians.
During daily classes and open seminars featured in the course of the academy, we will examine the development of string instruments’ contemporary performance practice, highlighting the inextricable correlation between instrumental exploration and compositional research. Through daily meetings and lessons focused on selected repertoire, students will develop their personal understanding of instrumental techniques and performing strategies of today’s music.

 

Students can contact me to propose specific works/projects they wish to work on during the academy. Here a (non-exhaustive) list of possible repertoires we could work on:

 

Malin Bång, purfling [10′, 2012, with live electronics]

Natacha Diels, Second Nightmare, for KIKU [10′, 2013] – for solo and two assistants

Cat Hope, Shadow [10′, 2016, with tape] – For string duo and subtone

Clara Iannotta, dead wasps in the jam-jar (i) [3′, 2014/15]

Lina Järnegard Fall snö [7′, 2006, with live electronics] – viola

Yu Kuwabara 水の声 – Mizu no Koe – Water Voice [10′, 2015/19]

Liza Lim, Philtre [8′, 1997]

Liza Lim, Amulet [7′, 1992] – viola

Wang Lu, Unbreathable Colors [10, 2017]

Rebecca Saunders, Hauch [8′, 2018]

Lisa Streich, Falter [8′, 2020]

Kristine Tjøgersen, Prologue & Avian Chatters [7′, 2021]

Anna Thorvaldsdottir, sola [17′, 2019] – viola

Approcci compositivi e tecniche strumentali: l’esplorazione degli strumenti ad arco nella musica contemporanea.

 

La tecnica violinistica ha subito una significativa espansione nel corso degli ultimi decenni; sonorità estreme, approcci strumentali inconsueti, notazioni elaborate e innovative sono al centro dell’esplorazione estetica, compositiva ed esecutiva sviluppata dai musicisti di oggi.
Nel corso delle lezioni e dei seminari previsti all’interno del corso, esaminando l’evoluzione della prassi esecutiva violinistica contemporanea, si delineerà l’inestricabile correlazione tra esplorazione strumentale e ricerca compositiva. Grazie a incontri e lezioni giornaliere incentrate su brani selezionati, gli studenti svilupperanno una comprensione personale delle tecniche strumentali e delle strategie performative della musica d’oggi.

 

 

Gli studenti sono incoraggiati a contattarmi per proporre specifici repertori/progetti che desiderano approfondire nel corso dell’accademia. Qui sotto una lista (non esaustiva) di possibili brani su cui lavorare assieme:
