“Technique without genius isn’t worth much, but genius without technique isn’t worth anything”
II ANNUAL COURSE IN TECHNIQUE OF ORCHESTRA CONDUCTING
CITY OF ROME (ITALY)
The course will be held in Milan by Prof. ENNIO NICOTRA and it is aimed to all those young orchestra conductors and musicians who wish to develop and improve their technique.
The course teaches practical and theoretical competencies that are not given by the traditional courses. The study program is in fact based on the “Musin system”: Maestro Nicotra was student and assistant of Ilya Musin
– legendary Russian teacher (1904-1999) in whose school Yuri Temirkanov, Valery Gergiev, Semyon Bychkov, Rudolf Barshai and many others learned theri craft – who developed a unique didactical method, that many consider the equivalent of the Stanislavskij method for acting technique studies.
Classes focus on the analysis and the improvement of the conducting techniques, through an exercise with a piano duo; the semantics of the gesture, the communicational aspects and the interaction with the ensemble will be analyzed. The course is carried out in 8 meetings: the first 7 are organized in 21 individual lessons, each one lasting 35/40 minutes (2 days a month) 8 students admitted
