The highly specialized course in orchestral conducting, in the meetings held by Maestro Adriano Melchiorre, aims to offer participants complete and in-depth training in orchestral conducting, with particular emphasis on gestural techniques, the concerting of scores taken from the repertoire classic, romantic, modern and contemporary. Through theoretical and practical lessons, students will have the opportunity to deepen their conducting skills and to compete with various musical ensembles, from the double quintet to the full orchestra. For composers, the possibility of conducting and concerting their own original compositions will also be offered.

For the lessons curated by Maestro Gianluca Podio on orchestral conducting with soundtrack orientation, some of the most common themes typical of orchestral conducting linked to image and commercial music (Cinema, TV, Radio and other types) will be addressed.

Also in this context, original pieces for given film sequences written by the students will be concerted and performed so as to practically verify the professional problems that arise in the recording studio when creating the various pieces of a soundtrack.
