Ready to go “Tirana Composition Academy”
After years of trying to accomplish such a project, here comes “Tirana Composition Academy”. This initiative is related to the intention to grow the opportunities for young Albanian composers coming from all Albanian-speaking areas.
The initiator of this Academy is the renowned Albanian composer Thoma Simaku, whose activity ranks him among the internationally acclaimed Albanian artists in the great music world.
In this first edition, the composer Simaku will be together with the great French clarinetist Jerome Comte.
For several days, both professors Simaku and Comte coming from York University in Britain and the Paris Conservatory in France will share lectures, training and seminars on contemporary composing techniques with their young composers.
“Tirana Composition Academy”comes to life this year and this edition will be realized with the support of our Ministry of Culture, the French Embassy in Tirana, in cooperation with the Academy of Sciences of Albania, the Youth Academy.
The event will be held at the premises of the Academy of Sciences in Tirana.
The French clarinetist Jerome Comte is also a soloist of the Ensemble Intercontemporain, Paris.
