CMClassics is pleased to present to you this summer the 3rd edition of its String Quartet Master Classes with the Jerusalem Quartet.
From 6th to 12th August 2022, Crans-Montana will throb to the rhythms and harmonies of the string quartet. 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 an exceptional 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:
- Monday 8th August, 6pm
- Wednesday 10th August, 6pm
