Master classes

For solo instrument & chamber music

In addition to the centuries-old Viennese music tradition of having the finest performers on stages, the last years have given rise to a new tradition, which may be seen as equally important: To invite master performers with an international reputation in order to pass on their skills and knowledge, their professionalism and experience in the form of seminars, courses and master classes.

The master classes are aimed at musicians and amateurs with some background of music education. The participants will learn about the basis of different music styles, the repertoire of the Austrian composers and the traditions of the Viennese music culture. There will be a possibility to get acquainted with the principles of stage performance in theory and practice, to learn new exercises for technique building, sound development, hand positions and posture, expression and stage presence, as well as many inspirations for the interpretation of music works.
