Municipal Conservatory & Philharmonic Amphitheatre of Kalamata
10th until 20th July 2020
This year’s viola masterclass with Ilias Sdoukoswill be held from the 10th until the 20th July in rooms of the Municipal Conservatory and the Philharmonic Amphitheatre of Kalamata. The masterclasses for violin with Felix Froschhammer, violoncello with Indira Rahmatulla and piano with Alexia Mouza will also be held during the same time period.
The viola masterclass gives the opportunity to young violists to develop their musical and technical skills whilst also assisting them to reachtheir personal goals. Musicians preparing for exams, competitions or auditions are of course welcome. Through a small group of active participants, the festival is cultivating an inspiring and friendly environment for the best possible development of each violist. At the same time, the masterclass participants have the chance to appear frequently together on stage, invigorating as a result the international artistic exchange, inspiration and musical dialogue of the International Kalamata Music Days. The concerts will be held in Kalamata and its surrounding area.
The masterclass with Ilias Sdoukos is aimed at young violists from all around the world and of all ages – from those aiming to study music to students and graduates of conservatories and music universities. The masterclasses will be open to the broader public. Students of the Municipal Conservatory of Kalamata (including students other thanviolists) are invited to attend and get inspired.
Already existing chamber music ensembles (for example duets, piano trios, quartets etc.), that are interested in participating in the masterclasses and would like to present their work to more than one tutor are also welcomed and can contact us for more information (for example a piano trio could have lessons with Felix Froschhammer, Indira Rahmatulla and Alexia Mouza).
The piano accompanist of the viola masterclass is Popi Malapani.
Lesson languages: English and Greek.
The cost of active participation in the viola masterclass is 250 € per person.
An active participation in the masterclass is only possible after application through the website and admission by the viola tutor.
Application deadline: 10th June 2020!
