International string quartet course at Nussdorf/Inn
Monday July 30 - Saturday (included) August 4, 2018
KAMMERMUSIKTAGE INNTAL (ChamberMusicDays "Inntal") - that means an annual international string quartet course for 6 days in a little picturesque village in southern Bavaria (South Germany) near the border of Austria, always happened in the first week in august.
This course is designed for advanced amateur and musicians – both individuals and pre-formed groups – with many experience in playing chamber music but also for professional musicians and students; it includes no less than 8 teaching units of 90 minutes, each.
Program 2018 proposed for single players:
Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga - string quartet No. 3, Es-Flat major
Johannes Brahms - string quartet op. 51 Nr. 2
Pre-formed groups can choose their own program.
Classes will be taught by professional teachers in rooms provided by the local council of Nussdorf and are under the guidance of the members of "Diogenes Quartet", one of the most famous young string quartets in Germany. During the workshops Diogenes Quartet explore the artistry of playing as a string quartet, as well as the highly diverse means of expression and communication offered by chamber music.
Each ensemble will have a rehearsal room at its own disposal during the whole course and will be tutored in their groups by one of the coaches. In addition, the coaches will rotate during the course. So each group will have been tutored by all coaches during the course. The course is international with participants from Japan, USA, Israel, Austria, Swizzerland, Netherlands and Germany.
At the end of the course, participants have the option to perform in one of our baroque churches.
Programs are balanced by plenty of free time. There is full opportunity for musical get-togethers or continued playing and musical
activities in the evenings.
The village is located between Munich, Salzburg and Innsbruck and was awarded the title of „The most beautiful village of Europe“ in 2004. Beautiful countryside of Bavaria.
Of course you come well prepared to the course, of course you enjoy others to be well prepared as well.
Every year the participants enjoy meeting and playing with new and old friends in Nussdorf under the guidance of the world-class faculty of Diogenes Quartet:
".....It is always a most wonderful time to spend with you and all the friends in Nussdorf whom we meet every year and really worth visiting from Tokyo....."
"....I have registered many chamber music courses in my life, but I will notice that the members of Diogenes Quartet are definitely a stroke of luck and I have never had better tutors...."
