Academy 2013 : sackbuts, cornetts, violas & double basses still required

It is still possible to apply to the 2013 Ambronay European Academy for sackbuts, cornetts, violas & double basses players.

Monteverdi's Orfeo under the musical and pedagogical direction of Leonardo García Alarcón.
For its 20th production, the Ambronay European Baroque Academy returns to the origins of opera, to the foundations of this baroque repertoire which it has championed passionately since its inception. Orfeo, a musical fable written by Claudio Monteverdi in 1607, is a musically intense work with a libretto directly inspired by Ovid's Metamorphosis, and is often considered the first true opera. The richness of the orchestration, the virtuosity of the choral writing and the precise characterisation of the roles make this work an ideal playground for young talent.

Conductor in residence at the Ambronay Cultural Encounter Centre since 2010, Leonardo García Alarcón will conduct his second Academy.
The staging of this 20th Academy will be entrusted to Laurent Brethome.

7 soloists, 15 chorists, 4 dancers and 30 instrumentalists will be selected all over Europe to participate in this project.

A training period for singers will take place from April 25th to May 6th, 2013. Rehearsals will then take place in Bourg-en-Bresse with teachers specialized in the music of Monteverdi. A european tour will follow from October 3d to October 22d.

All the information is in the application form. Application deadline : January 08th, 2013
