ARCo - Art, Research and Creation opus 2023 - is a binational Franco-Austrian academy dedicated to musical creation and open to the international scene. Created in 2019 by composers Yann Robin and Henry Fourès, it is aimed at the new generation of composers and performers, and aims to guide them in their training and to accompany them in their professional insertion.
The result of the collaboration between the Mozarteum University of Salzburg in Austria, the GMEM and the ensembles Multilateral, Métaboles and Tana Quartet, it takes place alternately in Salzburg and in Marseille.
The 2023 edition will take place from July 7 to 16, 2023 at the GMEM and will offer 12 young composers, 2 string quartets, 6 singers and an assistant conductor, carefully selected, a training of excellence alongside an expert teaching team with varied aesthetics.
In total immersion, they will benefit from the teaching of Francesco Filidei, Henry Fourès, Elisabeth Gutjahr, Sarah Nemtsov, Valérie Philippin, Eva Reiter, Yann Robin and Christian Sébille. Contributing to this creative effervescence, the musicians of the Tana Quartet and the soloists of the Multilateral and Métaboles ensembles, directed by Léo Warynski, will accompany the students and work hand in hand with them, placing cooperation at the heart of the exchanges.
To make the experience even richer, several concerts will be held throughout the academy and will be offered to all audiences. As a fervent defender of contemporary repertoire and creation, ARCo proposes a varied program combining major existing works and creations by the trainees, ensembles and artists present.
During this meeting time, transmission, exchange and sharing are at the center of the relationships and spread among all the participants: ARCo stimulates a social ebullition charged with inventiveness and becomes a fertile ground for experimentation and creation.
