For amateurs and up-and-coming musicians
Masterclasses are wonderful encounters between experienced professional musicians and young artists, amateurs or up-and-coming musicians.
For some, it is an opportunity to improve themselves, to follow a complementary training. For others, it is a way to discover and understand the workings of early instruments and the repertoire of early music.
Real partnerships are thus formed with organisations putting young musicians’ training at the heart of their project: festivals offering music academies or masterclasses (such as the Festival Sinfonia in Périgord – masterclass in August 2013 around Vivaldi’s Estro Armonico) and artistic teaching institutions.
In 2014-2015, Café Zimmermann collaborated with the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional in Avignon, the intercommunal school of music of the Pays d’Apt et Arts Vivants in the Vaucluse, and the Jean Moulin Auditorium for the organisation of masterclasses from November 2014 to February 2015. Students got together with musicians of the ensemble for a thorough study of works by J.S. Bach and A. Vivaldi. Together, they performed them as the opening act of the ensemble’s concert at the Jean Moulin auditorium (Le Thor, February 7th, 2015). These masterclasses were therefore a great starting point for a high-quality educational project – led in collaboration with teachers from two conservatoires – and a beautiful experience of the music scene for the young musicians..
