Composers+Summer Academy 2018 | DAY 7



today is probably the most important day because all the pieces were finished we had a big general rehearsal today well we could we heard all 18 compositions it was very interesting also to see how different composers how how they approach accordion from different perspective through the own filter of their own individuality when you have peace with the extended techniques you always have to know first what effect you want to create the first is emotion and then this material I'm playing five pieces I mean a five composers probably Rafael's piece is the more challenging technically and rich McCauley it's a cannon between string quartet and accordion in solo piece for accordion by vladats Mickey Jewish I had to work with sound quality the piece reflects my inner emotions Dominick chose a title the Vasa which is an Indian word for spirit to be in this type of atmosphere we had an amazing concert just now with especially patient and interested audience and really engaged I mean I I think the music is absolutely brilliant but sometimes to present a condemned religious piece for somebody who is not at all familiar with this type of music can be a challenge composers had big rounds of applause so I think that's a success you [Applause]
