Last week-end, I was able to participate as an active conductor to the 11th internation conducting masterclass held by the BDB-Musikakademie in Staufen-im-Breisgau, with Douglas Bostock.
Here are the pieces I had the pleasure to conduct :
- Gordon Jacob, Giles Farnaby Suite
- Philip Sparke, The Seasons
- Guy Woolfenden, Firedance
- Gemba Fujita, Lamentation of the Archangel Michael
This was a memorable week-end. I learned a lot, met inspiring people, laughed a lot an enjoyed some good german beers. And we were able to conduct a whole band ! (Sinfonisches Verbandsblasorchester Markgräferland) Here a some impressions :
