Music days - Mainzer virtuosi & friends

"Musiktage am Rhein" is a two-week intensive course that focuses on the art of playing together. Chamber music and ensemble playing is the best way to become a great musician. Whether you dream of a solo career, hope to get an orchestral position, are looking for the right people for your chamber music project, or want to pass on your acquired musical knowledge to younger generations later, practice and practice in chamber music should be an integral part of any musical education. Through playing with others, the most important skill of any musician is trained: to listen and to understand. During the course, individual lessons are offered daily to prepare for the ensemble. In addition, there are coaching sessions, individual mentoring, joint rehearsals and performance training.
