Dear chamber music performers,
Antoine Françoise and Patrick Stadler of internationally renowned Ensemble Nikel will be in London for the UK premiere of Matthew Shlomowitz’s ‘Lecture about Listening to Music’ as part of this season’s Kammer Klang programme at Cafe Oto. As part of their visit they are offering a 2-day workshop of coaching and discussion on new chamber music.
The workshop will be open to up to four chamber music ensembles (existing or formed for the occasion) on 30th September and 1st October, culminating in an informal concert at the Cafe OTO Project Space on Monday 1st October, 7pm.
We are looking for chamber music ensembles who are interested in repertoire from the last 20 years to participate. The minimum number of players your ensemble should have is two. There is no maximum number of players, but the ensemble must not use a conductor. We will not have a piano, but the use of electric keyboard is welcome.
Each group will receive coaching on one piece from both members of Nikel, and discuss specific new chamber music questions with the group. You must be available for the full two days to participate.
The workshop is free. Attendance to the concert will also be free.
