Zoë in residence in Snape as string tutor for the 2019 Composition and Performance course.
Established in 1992 by Oliver Knussen and Colin Matthews, this course for composers, instrumentalists and singers has been a flagship course within the programme and many of its alumni have gone on to become internationally established composers. Six emerging composers will be invited to create a c. 5’ piece, which is workshopped daily by the ensemble and singers. Alongside, the 16 instrumentalists and 4 singers will explore 20th & 21st century repertoire under the guidance of hugely experienced and knowledgeable tutors, including Zoë Martlew, Melinda Maxwell and Michael Thompson. The course culminates in a concert at Snape Maltings and participants will be invited to perform the new works in the 2020 Aldeburgh Festival. Final Concert Thu 11 July 4pm, Britten Studio, Snape
