Vincitore assoluto di numerosi concorsi nazionali e internazionali (Stresa, Ancona, "Auditorium" della RAI, Cesena), sia da solista sia in formazioni da camera, ha subito intrapreso un'intensissima attività cameristica e orchestrale. Ha fondato gruppi storici, come il noto Quintetto Arnold, con il quale si è esibito in tutte le più rinomate sale da concerto del mondo. Il Quintetto Arnold è stato per vent’anni incontrastato protagonista di un intenso movimento cameristico nel repertorio contemporaneo; questa storica formazione ha interpretato con vivo successo oltre cinquanta prime assolute di autori quali Berio (“Ricorrenze” presso l’IRCAM di Parigi, presente Pierre Boulez), Donatoni (“Blow” nell’ambito della rassegna “Musica nel nostro tempo”), De Pablo, Einaudi, Francesconi, Maggi e moltissimi altri. Il Quintetto è stato invitato a tenere corsi in sedi prestigiose, fra le quali spiccano i Ferienkurse di Darmstadt. Sempre nell’ambito del Quintetto, Leonardo Dosso ha promosso la ricerca di manoscritti inediti del Classicismo (Cambini, Briccialdi), in seguito registrati in forma integrale per Stradivarius. Il lavoro svolto dal Quintetto è documentato in una decina di CD, sempre recensiti con apprezzamento sulla stampa specializzata, e spesso citati in autorevoli guide alla discografia mondiale.

Per diversi anni Leonardo Dosso ha fatto parte anche della formazione “Alpe Adria Ensemble”, composta da musicisti dell’area mitteleuropea, con i quali si è esibito a Vienna, Budapest, Milano e nel resto d’Europa, registrando anche per l’etichetta Hungaroton.

Laboratorio di interpretazione musicale elettronica per strumentisti e compositori

Anche nella musica si parla sempre più spesso di realtà aumentata ovvero di sistemi che incrementano il livello percettivo di uno spettatore. E’ sempre più importante perciò per lo strumentista contemporaneo esercitare una certa padronanza anche sulla tecnologia più semplice per essere in grado di accedere a nuove possibilità espressive.

In questo modulo verranno presentati i principali sistemi che permettono anche al musicista inesperto in campo informatico di sperimentare in modo semplice e creativo queste nuove possibilità sia dal punto di vista della prassi esecutiva che da quello dell’elaborazione del segnale in funzione della creazione artistica. I corsi individuali rivolti a qualsiasi livello verranno personalizzati in base alla creatività del candidato: performance live, improvvisazione, composizione musicale elettronica, interpretazione di opere elettroacustiche già esistenti per il proprio strumento.

Edoardo Milani ha studiato pianoforte, flauto presso il conservatorio G. Tartini di Trieste dove attualmente è iscritto al corso di Oboe. Diplomato in musica elettronica e composizione videomusicale presso lo stesso conservatorio, si occupa di produzione musicale e radiofonica.
