Music @ Felcino Bianco
aims to provide solutions for musicians and their needs in a variety
of different ways. We do this by focussing on what it is that they
seek to achieve for themselves, using intensive study, preparation
for interpretation, supervised practice and performance of pieces
that are of particular importance to the musician(s).
MasterClass of Music Citerna
is our principal activity taking place this year from 7th - 20th of July
2013. Up to 30 attendees can enrol for this course which will
concentrate on violin, viola and violoncello with a limited number
of piano students. Thus, works for strings, chamber music and piano
accompaniment can be included. Cello jazz/improvisation may also be
available (see also www.cellorhythmics.co.uk
) Students will benefit from intensive tuition on a daily basis, masterclasses
and performance in at least two concerts to be performed during the
course. The concerts will be open to the public.
Tuition/Supervision for MasterClass of Music Citerna will
be provided by Elvira
(violoncello), both members of the Bekova
Trio, and by Sergey
Bezrodny (pianoforte). Those invited in the past
have included James
(cello jazz, guitar and improvisation), Povilas
Stravinsky (pianoforte) and Reinbert
Evers (classical guitar).
Alternatives to the Masterclass of Music Citerna in 2013 will include residential courses of no more than 6 - 8 professional or advanced amateur strings players who will stay with us at Felcino Bianco, board, lodging and accommodation, as well as professional fees will be included in the price. The aim is to focus on the expressed wishes of the applicants, beit for solo or ensemble purposes. These may be intensive study, preparation and rehearsal of predetermined pieces and/or attention to techniques , studies and scales. Essentially YOU the applicant will decide what you want to concentrate on and for how long you wish to work at it. Dates can be arranged to suit YOUR convenience. Elvira Bekova will be in residence on such occasions and it may be
possible for Alfia
Bezrodny to join her for specific projects. Finally, should the numbers
of applicants warrant it, additional courses along the lines of MasterClass
of Music Citerna can be arranged. Preformed strings groups, e.g. quartets, are especially welcome.
