Sound and Music is thrilled to be partnering with Quatuor Bozzini and Sound Festival as part of this Embedded opportunity for two UK composers to join two Canadian peers taking part in Composer's Kitchen in the 2017 exchange. During this project the composers will have the opportunity to spend time working closely with the quartet in workshops in Montreal and the UK, developing their skills in writing for this ensemble and having their completed works performed as part of a special concerts in Montreal and at Sound Festival, Scotland's Festival of new music.

This unique professional development opportunity revolving around the string quartet is a combination of workshop, laboratory, playground and masterclass. The project is focused on your artistic development, and both Sound and Music and Quatuor Bozzini will provide support to help you explore your ideas and creative practice.  

Georgia Rodgers, composer on Embedded Composers' Kitchen 2015 - 16 writes:

The Bozzinis approach every piece with energy and rigour as well as loads of experience. They are really interested in exploring each composer's ideas and where they're coming from. At the same time Composer's Kitchen is a very open, friendly and supportive environment so it makes for a great combination. I really learnt a lot from it.

Fiona Robertson, Festival Director, Sound says:

I’m delighted that we are to host the Composer’s Kitchen again in 2017. It is an amazing opportunity for young composers to be able to work internationally with the experienced and inspiring Bozzini Quartet. And it allows our audiences to gain a real understanding of the creative process involved in composing

Nicole Rochman, Creative Project Leader, says:

I am very much looking forward to partnering once again with Quatuor Bozzini and soundfestival on the 2017 Composers’ Kitchen.  I have always been struck by the Bozzini’s composer-centred approach, and I admire the curiosity and commitment that drives them to get to the core of the composer’s intentions.   With the great environment offered by soundfestival to present the new works and the support of two great mentors, Bryn Harrison and Linda Catlin Smith this is a tremendously exciting opportunity.

Stephanie Bozzini says:

Composer’s Kitchen is our special space where young composers can freely experiment with us. The potential for creativity here and the richness of the exchanges that arise from this project go far beyond a craftsmanlike approach to learning. Every year we look forward to what the next ‘chefs’ will be ‘cooking’ for us.
