From 8th to 15th August 2020, Crans-Montana will throb to the rhythms and harmonies of the string quartet for eight days. Concerts, Master Classes, private lessons, various events, all under the direction of the Jerusalem Quartet, THE point of reference worldwide for many seasons now.
Four young quartets which have already been confirmed and affirmed come to Crans-Montana to perfect their skills with these Master Classes, which promise to be a unique event in Valais, in Switzerland and beyond!
The string quartet represents the very essence of Western music and European culture. What composer has not wanted to write a string quartet to prove to the world, and especially to posterity, that he deserves his place among the greats? Putting the virtuosity of the performers at the service of music and never the other way around, that is one of the characteristics and one of the challenges of the string quartet.
Don’t miss these two dates:
- Tuesday 11th August, 6pm
- Thursday 13th August, 6pm
on the top floor of the Regent College Senior School, Rue du Zier 4, in Crans-Montana, a magnificent setting for an exceptional moment.
You will have the opportunity to see teachers and students in action. Experience a Master Class with us, a privileged opportunity to deepen all the technique and musical sensitivity needed to influence a career through a single work.
Since the teachers and participants come from all over the world, the classes will be taught in English.
Last but not least: entry is free for everyone.
