Program description

MA in Classical Music Performance (Violin)

These programs are for the truly committed for those young artists who do have the aim to be on stage regularly. In the instrumental performance classes held two times a week through four semesters the goal is to achieve:

  • technical abilities of a real virtuoso,
  • playing stability and reliability,
  • detailed stylistic knowledge of all major eras and genres of classical music related to the instrument studied,
  • an ability to shape the musical process down to the smallest nuances and shades with ease and creativity,
  • a fundamental respect for the composer’s instructions, put into a viable combination with the performer’s own ideas and personality,
  • and, possibly most importantly:
  • an open spirit with an honest motivation to, and ability of, getting in touch with the emotional essence of the music performed, and communicating it to the audience in a straightforward yet sophisticated manner.

Playing in large ensembles such as an orchestra or chorus is also an integral part of the education. For violinists and flutists, in addition to the abovementioned musical refinement benefits, it might be of vital interest in their near future to acquire practical, well utilizable experience in orchestral playing. We have designed the MA program to fulfill all these expectations with regular orchestral and choral concerts, with both regular and intense pre-concert rehearsal sessions, under the batons of nationally renowned professional choral and orchestral conductors.
