Masterclass for the harpsichord with Prof. Hambitzer in Germany

Masterclass for the harpsichord with Prof. Hambitzer in Bonn, Germany
with sightseeing trip through Bonn and its region!

This masterclass was created to give young students (from age 16) the possibility to get a first-hand introduction to the harpsichord. It is aimed especially at students who consider

studying this instrument or who are already studying at a conservatory but want to get new impressions on how to play such an instrument. Last but not least this masterclass is the perfect opportunity for students who are preparing to participate in competitions. Under the guidance of the internationally renowned Prof. Gerald Hambitzer of the HfMT conservatory in Cologne you will have a week-long training schedule with this wonderful instrument and learn all the subtle techniques which are very different from the regular piano.

The masterclass takes place in the historical city of Bonn which is Beethoven’s birthplace. It has a long history with classical music which you can experience first-hand through all the concerts, competitions and music festivals that are being held in this city. Cologne, which in itself offers a huge amount classical entertainment and which is home to the HfMT conservatory, is also just 30 minutes away by train. Therefore this region is the ideal place for studying an instrument such as the harpsichord or other classical instruments.

Deadline for application: 30th of April 2018!

The masterclass begins on 12th of August 2018 and ends on 18th of August with one additional week for sightseeing until 24th of August 2018.

The number of participants is limited to 8 people, so that each and every one is assured at least 1 hour of tutoring by the master himself whereas the non-active students may listen to the lesson of their fellow student. The lessons will be held in English! Therefore it is imperative for you to be able to speak this language without greater difficulties (German is possible as well).

Between each lesson-day during the week you will have one day for practicing at the harpsichord. Since we have two harpsichords available, there will be more than enough time for everyone to practice what he or she learned the other day with Prof. Hambitzer. But this is not all: In addition to the lessons Prof. Gerald Hambitzer will hold a course in tuning the harpsichord, as well as an introduction in the intricate mechanics that give this instrument its unique sound at the end of your practice-days.

At the end of this masterclass you will get the opportunity to show your progress with the harpsichord by playing a concert together with the other participants in front of a public audience!

In addition you will also receive a certificate by Prof. Hambitzer for successfully participating in this masterclass
