Leipzig – April 2017

Musikschule NEUE MUSIK Leipzig
Eisenacher Str. 72, 04155, Leipzig, Allemagne

Introduction

This year’s Spring Academy in Leipzig presents a few new elements and changes which mostly result from our years long experience organizing academies and which will bring still more added value to the participants:

  • A pianist will be there to accompany the student’s concert, the daily masterclasses, the chamber music classes, and, if you you want, your individual lesson(s).
  • A “guest” package (*) can be booked by newcomers. It contains the participation in an introductory lesson (60 min.) for those who never played a theremin before and who want to discover it, the entrance to the public concert and the public workshop, and a listener’s place during the final student’s concert.
  • To simplify registration and accounting, we created a package, too, for all active participants (**): It includes both workshops, Carolina about Vibrato and Thierry about Musical Expression, the entrance to the public concert and the public workshop, use of rehearsal rooms during the academy, and the fees for the pianist during the student’s concert. You might add individual lessons, further workshops, the chamber music class and daily masterclasses “à la carte” to your registration as before.
  • Susanne Schlusnus, professional oboist and physiotherapist will offer a workshop titled “Warm up and body awareness” as a guest lecturer.

Details

  • During this Chamber Music Class, we will work on the Cherubinic Hymn N°7 by Dmitri Bortnyanskiy. It will only be held if 4 thereminists sign up for it. Registered participants will get their scores as soon as they sign up, they are expected to know and to master their voice when the class starts, so that we can really concentrate on the ensemble playing. The participation fee includes the remuneration for the accompanist.
  • The Daily Masterclasses are intended to work on musical and technical details of the programmed piece of music, you should have practiced it before. We can send you a score for practicing if you wish.
  • During the whole academy, Thierry will be there for servicing and upgrading your Theremin.
