FINAL OF THE «1st FOSCO CORTI INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION FOR CONDUCTORS»
Concert and presentation choir for the finalists of the competition
ow far can a conductor influence the sound of a choir? The finalists of the competition will have to prove their skills with comprehensible and efficient rehearsal work, clearly legible conducting and the realisation of their own interpretation.
For this purpose the competitors will be able to work with a professional ensemble: the singers of the Zurich Sing-Akademie. This is an exciting experience for us too, because we will get involved in sometimes completely different interpretations of the same piece over a very short time and we will have to react swiftly to what is shown to us by the various candidates. We are very much looking forward to the exciting encounters with the next generation of conductors!
The jury for this competition is made up of an international, renowned quintet from the choral scene:
Daniel Reuss (NL), Georg Grün (DE), Ursa Lah (SVN), Lorenzo Donati (IT) and Marco Faelli (IT).
Under the direction of Florian Helgath we will also perform the final concert. The detailed programme will be announced shortly.
More information can be found on the -> website of the competition.
