The International Academy [TDM] Trio de Magia offers a comprehensive exploration of contemporary music with a practical and theoretical approach: a mixture of instrumental masterclasses, masterclasses on composition, concerts and conferences, alongside other activities such as the TDM Composers Competition, the Reading Sessions and Workshops on electro-acoustic music and stage presence. Over the course of 3 days the Academy acts as a platform for artistic dialogue and exchange on an international level, bringing the most contemporary creations to younger generations and working with internationally renowned soloists and composers. The academy is aimed at young professionals or students who specialise in saxophone, percussion, piano and composition, with a special interest in broadening their experience in the field of contemporary musical creation.
