Composition Academy in Kalv 2021 (August 8-15)

We are very proud and happy to announce this year’s composition students! Their selection, from 167 candidates, was extremely difficult, and many are the students who we had to decline. However, we couldn’t be more happy about those we finally agreed upon. We welcome the following participants to take part in the Kalv International Composition Academy 2020 together with teachers Dmitri Kourliandski and Clara Iannotta and the invited ensembles:

Academy in Music Journalism in Kalv 2021 (August 11-17)

Information about how to apply to the Academy in Music Journalism will be announced later.
Course leader: Andreas Engström

The Kalv Festival organizes in collaboration with the mobile cultural magazine Kokpunkten/Critical Point and the German music magazine Positionen, a workshop in music journalism. Participation in the workshop involves an active participation in the festival. As a participant, you go to concerts, attend seminars, interview artists, and converse and socialize with colleagues and festival visitors. The course involves a training in critical, but also creative writing and editorial work. Together, the participants form a temporary editorial team that produces a theme number of Kokpunkten/Critical Point which will be published online shortly after the end of the festival.
