A master class usually takes place at one location.
Not this one. It was my idea to choose the special features of the two cities of Vienna and Bratislava as venues in order to convey the great affinity with the cultural heritage of Central Europe.
Nowhere else are there two capitals of different states that are as close to each other as Bratislava and Vienna: 60 km.
And so the common tradition of making music has grown over many hundreds of years. Bratislava, which was the capital of Hungary from the 16th to the 18th century under the name “Pozsony”, can be called the center of European musical culture at least as much as Vienna.
And we want to emphasize that with this master class. Working together on the works of Viennese Classicism on the basis of the tradition of Central Europe with an orchestra that arose precisely from this.
In Vienna, after the rehearsals, we offer you an evening in the footsteps of Beethoven in Heiligenstadt. If you want, you can easily travel to Bratislava by boat or train.
In the Slovak capital we offer you a cultural tour of the old Pressburg, as it is called in German.
And the concert will again take place in Vienna, in one of the most beautiful concert halls in Europe, the palace Ehrbar.
I wish you a lot of fun!
