Oktober 19 (evening) - 24 (evening)

The Cello Laboratory aimes to be a cultural adventure, meeting cultures from other parts of the world, communicating through music. Seeing contemporary music as the gate to artistic adventure and improvisation, we can open doors to the origin of the contemporary thoughts of Beethoven, Schumann and Ravel. We need to be very courageous to be true artists, daring to make choices from knowledge and experience, stepping into the unknown. On one hand the focus in this week will be on the craft of classical playing, including masterclasses and rehearsals with piano, on the other hand it will be about exploring music from today, asking us the question what music actually means in our world.

Our teachers during this course are the esteemed cellists Leonid Gorokhov and Jeroen den Herder
