Workshop for composers and interpreters
Initiated by saxophone tutor Marcus Weiss, the Chamber Sessions are offering chamber music experience in the field of New Music for instrumentalists coming to Darmstadt. A group of tutors is selecting works from a Call for Scores that can be workshopped during the Summer Course with musicians – 3 to 5 players in small ad-hoc ensembles – of the instrumental studios. Each ad-hoc ensemble will rehearse together with a Summer Course tutor in Darmstadt. The exchange on a concrete score, rehearsal methods, notation and interpretation questions and the cooperation with the composer (if possible) is in the foreground of the Chamber Sessions.
Registered participants of the Darmstadt composition studios are invited to submit ONE finished score for 3 to 5 players for the Chamber Sessions by 8 June 2018. The Chamber Session tutors will make the selection.
PDF files of easily readable performance material of the selected works must be ready by 20 June 2018.
A Call for Musicians for this is supposed to be published on 24 June 2018.
Instrumentations of 3 to 5 players are possible and may contain the following instruments: flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, trombone, accordion, piano (without any preparations), harp, guitar, violin, viola, cello and double bass.
Works with percussion or piano preparations cannot be considered for the Chamber Sessions.
Duration: max. 8 minutes
Registered participants of the composition courses can each submit ONE score as PDF by 8 June 2018 via e-mail to:
No download of files is possible.
