At the beginning of the course active students will be required to present an original composition they have begun or for which they have an outline. This composition must be for one of the following: quintet with flute (2 violins, viola, cello, flute), smaller ensemble or soloist. As the work develops it will be rehearsed by the resident performers: the Quartetto Promoteo and flutist Matteo Cesari. If possible, the composition will be performed at the end of course concert.
The collaboration of resident soloists will produce lessons and analyses aimed at providing essential knowledge of the classical and modern repertoires.
