Mentorship opportunity - for emerging flutists

Deadline: 23 May 2018 17:00

This is an opportunity to have two new works written for the emerging artist by composers from the Irish Composers’ Collective - one solo work and one duet to be performed with Lina. Through workshops/open rehearsals facilitated by Lina, the successful applicant will receive mentorship in performance and have facilitated composer-performer collaboration with a view to creating a positive process resulting in idiomatic pieces. At the end of a six-month period they will perform these new works alongside their mentor.

The ideal applicant is a student or emerging flautist with a keen interest in contemporary music.

Lina Andonovska leads a diverse career as soloist, chamber musician, orchestral player, collaborator and educator. Quickly gaining recognition internationally as a fearless and versatile artist, she has collaborated and performed with Crash Ensemble, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), s t a r g a z e, Southern Cross Soloists (Aus) and eighth blackbird (USA). She is critically acclaimed for her interpretation of new music, having closely collaborated with Louis Andriessen, Brett Dean, Ann Cleare, Donnacha Dennehy, Michael Gordon, David Lang, Thomas Ades, Anthony Pateras and Nick Roth. Rolling Stone Magazine hailed her performance of Bun-Ching Lam’s piccolo concertino at the Bang On A Can Summer Festival as “superbly played, (ranging) from sustained ‘somebody-please-get-that-tea-kettle’ squeaks to the flit and flutter of its beautifully lilting trills…”

In 2018/2019, Lina will be appearing with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Southern Cross Soloists and ULYSSES Ensemble; performing the latest opera by Dennehy/Walsh with Crash Ensemble throughout Europe, performing recitals at MusicaOcúpa Festival (Ecuador) and Unerhörte Musik (Berlin) and joining s t a r g a z e at the Edinburgh International Festival.
