Special project for composers, (e-)guitar & violin players

For his 2023 guitar course in Darmstadt, tutor Yaron Deutsch is aiming to pair guitarists with violin players in the most intimate setting of playing duets together. Alongside this close but rare encounter of instruments and instrumentalists, the project holds the humble goal of creating a generational meeting point in which young players will spend a day together with violin legend Irvine Arditti as they play through the compositions written for the project. To fulfil this goal we invite interested composers attending the Darmstadt Summer Course to submit an application for writing a piece for guitar/electric guitar & violin. The works will be worked through during the course period and will be performed at the guitar class concert finale.
