StradivariCLASS & StradivariCONTEST: 18.–23. July 2019
After a very successful first StradivariCLASS with more than 30 participants in 2018, the members of the StradivariQuartet will now be giving masterclasses in the beautiful Kollegi Schwyz on Lake Lucerne for the second time and in an extended edition. While in 2018 many young Chinese talents profited from the lessons of the outstanding chamber musicians, this year European and especially Swiss musicians are also very welcome. It should be an intercultural exchange to broaden the musical and cultural horizons for the young musicians.
Call for tenders
Would you like to participate in the StradivariCONTEST and the StradivariCLASS at Kollegi Schwyz in July 2019 and improve your musical skills together with other musicians?
After a long tradition of the StradivariFEST in Gersau, there has been a StradivariCLASS since 2018 and now for the first time also a StradivariCONTEST.
During a week you have the chance to convince the jury of your skills in a competition (optional) and then, solo or as a member of a chamber ensemble, you will take lessons with the members of the StradivariQuartet (Xiaoming Wang and Sebastian Bohren, violin; Lech Antonio Uszynski, viola; Maja Weber, violoncello) and befriended musicians (eg Per Lundberg, piano). At the same time, you can cultivate intercultural exchange with other talented and top-class musicians and deepen your chamber music activity. Both in the soloist direction and in the chamber music you can prove your talent at various concerts.
In 2019 the StradivariCONTEST and the StradivariCLASS take place with the focus on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
After the StradivariCLASS you will receive a StradivariFEST pass and can attend the concerts of the StradivariFEST Gersau. We are looking forward to applications from solo musicians and chamber ensembles from all over the world!
