From November 13 to 17, the Bilkent Composition program in the Department of Music hosted Prof. Mark Andre as composer-in-residence. Prof. Andre is a leading figure in contemporary music and currently a faculty member at the Dresden University of Music.
While in residence, Prof. Andre worked individually with all 16 students enrolled in the Bilkent Composition program and also gave a talk titled, “A Commented Reading of Anton Webern’s ‘The Path to the New Music.’”
Bilkent Composition has committed to collaborate with Prof. Andre for two years. His next visit is scheduled in February.
