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 :
