Valdeblore, Nice, France

A two-week festival set in the French Alps outside of Nice. The festival involved extensive rehearsals with the festival’s string quartet and the subsequent premiere of String Quartet #1: Sfidare. Each day we participated in seminars, presenting our music to each other in addition to receiving instrumentation lectures from faculty. The composition program was overseen by Prof. Andrew List of Berklee Conservatory with whom I also received a number of private lessons. During the festival, there was a performance of Fugue No.1 in G Minor and my own quartet arrangement of Schumann’s Kinderszenen No. 1 for string quartet, at a salon-style concert for the other participants.
