Composer’s Kitchen 2021

Resumption of the Composer’s Kitchen 2020 in partenership with Gaudeamus Muziekweek. For its 3rd partnership with Gaudeamus Muziekweek in The Netherlands, Quatuor Bozzini invites Canadian (or permanent resident) composers to apply for Composers’ Kitchen 2021. This professional residency takes place in Montréal (Canada) from June 21 to 24, 2021, and Aug-10-12, 2021, and in Utrecht (The Netherlands) from September 7 to 11, 2021. Composer Maybe Nas joins the quartet as mentor for this residency.

Composer’s Kitchen

“Dare to do what you’ve never done before!

Since 2005, this has been the motto to welcome several generations of creators of Composer’s Kitchen, a professional composition residency in string quartet writing. Offered to four emerging composers, this unique occasion is a combination of workshop, laboratory, masterclass, and concert settings. Throughout the multi-phase process, the composers are supported by — other than Quatuor Bozzini — the presence of experienced mentors who are amongst the most important figures in new music creation.

Each edition of the Composer’s Kitchen is a chance to rigorously work in a creative, non-competitive and relaxed atmosphere. During this enriching experience, residents are encouraged to experiment beyond the limits of convention and to explore new and varied aesthetic styles in a way that their mastery in string quartet writing is strengthened to its highest degree.

Quatuor Bozzini loves cultivating these relationships with composers beyond the residency period, resulting in a rich network of collaborations. In this way, Quatuor Bozzini always strives to stay active in current trends and practices of emerging composers.

Quatuor Bozzini works in partnership with international organizations — Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Sound and Music, Gaudeamus Muziekweek, nyMusikk Norge — resulting in unique and rich exchanges between host countries.
