Leave of absence

New chapter

After a period of fifteen years (2004–2019) working as a full-time recorder professor at the Superior Conservatory of Music in Sevilla, Spain, I have decided to request a leave of absence to be able to focus on artistic doctorate studies and my career as a performer. A new and exciting step for me in which I will be lucky enough to delve deeper into a subject that I am passionate about, historical improvisation, and I will do so both on a theoretical and a practical level, as I will be following a PhD in the Arts. I have just enrolled at docARTES, a doctoral programme for performers and composers hosted by Orpheus Instituut (Ghent) and Leuven University’s Doctoral Programme of Arts KU Leuven / LUCA Faculty of the Arts.

Updates

For this reason, news and updates will stop appearing during the coming years on this website, which gathers the activity of my class during the period from 2011 to June 2019. Nevertheless, I hope that all the contents published during this time will remain online and available for consultation: among others, the audiovisual archive, the bibliography and a good number of articles.

Thank you

I would like to acknowledge my students for their excellent job during their education years in Seville, as well as for their great responsibility and commitment in carrying out their studies, very often with outstanding results. It has been a great satisfaction for me and a great learning experience. I think that, as a teacher, I have not always made it easy, but I am convinced that it has been worth it.

Thank you and see you soon!

Study recorder at Sevilla’s Superior conservatory

Interested in studying recorder at Conservatorio Superior de Música in Sevilla, Spain, with professor Vicente Parrilla? We welcome and supports students from all over the world.

Enrolment

In September 2018, we’ll be offering three vacancies for recorder students for the next academic course 2018-2019. For further information and help with the application and enrollment process, just contact us.

About us

Here’s some info about us and our academic planning; watch us here, and have a look at some of the articles we’ve posted so far (in Spanish).

Open day — April

An open day, usually held during the month of April, is a perfect opportunity to learn more about a study programme at Sevilla’s superior conservatory. You will be able to attend performances, concerts and exhibitions by students and meet the teachers.

Admission test

During the admission test you will be asked to perform three works in three different styles from the recorder repertory, from at least two differente centuries. For instance:

  • Contemporary, 18th c. Italy and 18th c. France
  • 17th c., 18th c. Italy and 16th c.
  • Contemporary, 17th c. and 15th c.
  • Any other combination including three differente styles from two centuries

At least one of the pieces must be performed by heart. You will also be asked to sight read a piece after a brief period of preparation. Applicants should bring their own accompanists, in case they are needed. However, it is not compulsory, since the focus will be on how you perform, rather than what or with whom. Finally, you will be asked to briefly analyse a piece.

That’s it!
