The main focus of the International Composers+Summer Academy is to produce new works for accordion, both as a solo instrument and with chamber ensemble. Collaboration platform is the most essential basis of this Academy. The main purpose of this event is to gather composers and performers in one place and provide opportunity to work together on new, undiscovered sounds and material. Thus the Academy provides increasing ways of creating and exploring modern music for the accordion in the Baltic region and beyond.
This year we are delighted to introduse three internationally acclaimed tutors – a leading Swedish composer Daniel Nelson, Polish composer, accordionist, arranger and producer Mikołaj Majkusiak and the leading tutor of the Academy Dr. Rūta Vitkauskaitė, who has witnessed the Composers+Summer Academy evolve since its founding year in 2014.
Apart from close work with Academy Tutors, workshops, rehearsals and seminars, Composers+Summer Academy will also contain a concert series with various music genres and performers, including a final concert of world premieres of the pieces developed during the Academy, hot off the press! All the pieces composed at the Composers+Summer Academy will be professionally recorded, printed and published. Moreover, this year the Composers+Summer Academy venue is a recreation hotel and all the SPA treatments including massages, yoga sessions, swimming pool etc. will be available to the participants free of charge.
