TOTALLY-TRUMPET – Festival for New Trumpet Music
Conceived and created by William Forman, TOTALLY-TRUMPET is a three-day festival that brings together the joyous experimentation and expression of New Music with the highest standards of classical performance. Three prime time concerts and two late night concerts with works by some 30 composers from 11 countries provide a unique concentration of the wealth of new trumpet music at the highest artistic level. Several works will be premiered here as part of the project.
The main focus of the festival is to present New Music as a living artistic expression of our time, promoting communication between musicians and audience, as well as among performers themselves. The concerts will be complemented with innovative trumpet literature in a workshop for Berlin music students and amateur musicians held by the players at the festival. By means of active listening and joint music-making activities participants are introduced to the new works. Another workshop, for young composers and trumpeters, will facilitate communication between them and performers.
