BASBWE Wind Conducting Course

in association with the BASBWE Education Trust

28 July - 4 August 2013

Mark Heron & Russell Cowieson with guest tutor Bjorn Sagstad

soloists Paul Goodey oboe and Paul Vowles clarinet

This internationally recognised course is for conductors at intermediate and advanced levels with an interest in wind repertoire, or a desire to immerse themselves in issues relating to conducting wind and brass instruments. Up to twenty-five students will be accepted as "active" participants. Observers are also encouraged and will be fully involved in the course, but they will only conduct at the discretion of the tutors. An integral feature of the course is that all active participants receive podium time with an ensemble each day and a performance opportunity at the end of the week.

Participants will explore the physical language, score preparation, rehearsal technique and repertoire knowledge. All conducting sessions are videoed and students receive a DVD of their work at the end of the week as well as regular review sessions during it. The course runs concurrently with the Wind Ensemble Course and there will be close liaison between the two including the opportunity for selected participants to work with that ensemble. All participants should bring with them any instruments they play in order to accommodate ensemble work within the class. Students should, as a minimum, prepare thoroughly the works marked with an asterisk before commencement of the course. You may then wish to select further pieces from the remaining repertoire - it is usually more beneficial to know some of the music well, than all of it not so well. More experienced students may also wish to prepare works from the Wind Ensemble repertoire list.

Wind Ensemble

in association with BASBWE

28 July - 4 August 2013

Mark Heron & Russell Cowieson with guest tutor Bjorn Sagstad

The Wind Ensemble is designed for experienced amateurs and students to rehearse and perform significant repertoire written for the medium. Some of the repertoire will be studied in depth and form the basis for one or more of the several concerts the Wind Ensemble gives during the week. The remainder will be played in repertoire sessions. There will be opportunities for chamber music and there is close liaison with the BASBWE Wind Conducting Course. We are delighted to welcome Paul Goodey, Head of Wind, Brass & Percussion at the Royal Northern College of Music as co-soloist in Gary Carpenter’s Doubles Concerto alongside Sherborne regular Paul Vowles who gave the premiere of the work in 2009.
