A central pillar of the Grafenegg Festival is the Composer in Residence programme, which every year shines a light on an eminent composer of contemporary music. During their stay in Grafenegg, the distinguished composers premiere their own works, but are also there to give advice and support to young colleagues in the workshop Ink Still Wet.
Composer conductor-workshop Ink Still Wet’s aim is to create a platform for young composers and to promote a unique creative exchange between audiences, composers and performing musicians.
Led by the Composer in Residence of the Grafenegg Festival, the intention of the Ink Still Wet Workshop is to provide impulses for the creation of new works for orchestra. In addition, the workshop offers the opportunity to rehearse and perform an own work with a professional orchestra. Thus, also gaining a new perspective on one’s own work. The participants’ works will be presented to the public in the workshop’s closing concert as part of the Grafenegg Festival.
Next year’s Ink Still Wet workshop is led by Philippe Manoury, composer in residence of the Grafenegg Festival 2023. Composer and conductor Brad Lubman will work as conducting coach with the participants.
