Timetable:

Once again: the deadline for receipt of all materials is Friday, 21 February, 2020. 

Participants accepted into the course will be notified by email no later than Friday, 6 March 2020.

By no later than Friday, 13 March 2020, accepted participants will be asked to confirm their participation in the course by paying a deposit of 150 euros or USD$170 via PayPal, sent to Professor Hoffman via joel.hoffman@uc.edu. 

 

On 16 March, confirmed participants will be informed of the available instrumentation for the course, and will be asked to compose a piece (maximum of seven minutes’ duration) for a specific combination of instruments/voice drawn from the complete ensemble. At that time, confirmed participants will be given the opportunity to request a specific instrumentation from among the performing forces available. Those requests will be honored to the greatest extent possible. Works involving electronics are very welcome but all equipment will have to be supplied by the composer. 

 

By 22 May, the new works to be performed on the final concerts will be completed. It is required that the participants’ compositions will be completed well before the course begins so that the focus during the course can be on revising and refining. Scores and parts should be sent to Professor Hoffman via yousendit.com (or a similar service) no later than Friday, 22 May, 2020, and copies of these should be emailed directly to the new work’s performers at that time to allow sufficient time for individual preparation. It is hoped that the composers will also work on new pieces for the ensemble during the course, which can be rehearsed and discussed along with the previously completed pieces. 

 

By 31 May, the remainder of the course tuition (450 euros) will be due (150 euros deposit + 450 euros tuition = 600 euros total tuition), and will be payable to the UPBEAT International Summer Music School. Instructions for payment of the course tuition will be available on the UPBEAT website. NOTE: Your deposit of 150 euros ($170) is not due UNTIL and UNLESS you are accepted into the course.

A winner of the prestigious “Brazilian International Press Award”, Gustavo Tavares hasbeen described as “one of the most important Brazilian names in contemporary classical music” (Correio Braziliense). He is Doctor of Musical Arts, and is acknowledged as a versatile musician, known not only as cellist but also as composer, arranger and educator. He has performed in many countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas, playing in some of the most famous prestigious festivals and concert venues in the world, such as the Kennedy Center in Washington, Carnegie Hall in New York, Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele and Rheingaufestspiele in Germany, the UNESCO hall in Paris, Sala Puccini in Milan, the Quirinale Palace in Rome, Miami Festival, Royal Academy of Music in London, the Nehru Park in New Delhi, Lisinski Hall of Zagreb, and Sala Bellas Artes in Puerto Rico. Programs for radio and television include concerts transmitted by the American National Public Radio in Washington DC, New York WQXR, Slovenia’s national Radio and TV (RTV), Croatia National Broadcast (HRT), ETV Sri Lanka, Norwegian NRK, and Italian RAI. In 1995, he created the ensemble “Triangulo” together with Paquito d’Rivera and Pablo Zinger, which, according to the American critic C.Berg helped “redefine the basic assumptions of chamber music. ” The group recorded several CDs, one of them reaching finalist for the Grammy Award for “Best Crossover Record”. Gustavo Tavares was a student of Antonio Janigro at the Musikhochschule in Stuttgart, Germany, where he graduated with highest honours in 1986, and later became Bernard Greenhouse`s teaching assistant, while working towards his doctorate at Rutgers University, USA. Also at Rutgers University, he was for several years “Artist in Residence” at the Center for Latino Arts and Culture. His compositions and arrangements have been performed and recorded by artists like YoYo Ma, the Cello Ensemble of Venice, and the Sebastian Quartet, to name a few. He made several arrangements for the CDs “Riberas”by the Buenos Aires Quartet as well as for “Obrigado Brazil – Live” by Yoyo Ma, and both productions were awarded the Latin Grammy. His work “Egum” has been recently premiered at the “La Fenice” theatre in Venice, Italy. He collaborates often with musicians within a variety of musical genres, as well as withdancers, writers and visual artists, and he is author of the book “Brazilian music for cello and guitar: on the corner of the classical and the popular”, written in co-authorship with Brazilian jazz guitar player, Nelson Faria. He has served as jury member at prestigious contests such as the International Cello Competition Antonio Janigro, and the Rudolf Matz Competition. As a teacher, he has had contact with talented young musicians not only asguest professor in recognised conservatories and festivals but also through projects at less favoured areas in Africa, Asia and the Americas. Among recent activities, a new solo CD soon to be released, and a collaboration with Brazil’s “Sustainable Amazonas Foundation” leading to 2 tours along some of the rivers inthe Amazonas Basin, performing for the local population at parks and reservations. This collaboration, which will also lead towards a documentary project, is also part of a broader research project focused on sound in the natural tropical environment.Gustavo Tavares has been knighted by the Brazilian Government as “Officer of the Rio Branco Order” in recognition for his contribution to culture, both in Brazil and abroad.
