Art of Success
Success comes in many different forms, and we believe in the ART of Success. The capacity building programmes we provide all musicians, come with a range of tools and skills to solidify a foundation of self-management for them to pursue their professional musical careers independently. Their artistic education is enriched with advanced vocational programmes, master classes, workshops and more, that are taught by internationally renowned professionals.
We create platforms on which we enable the exchange of experience, knowledge, and expertise while constantly encouraging everyone to stay curious and never stop learning. Our musicians leave the academy with a diverse skillset and self-confidence that enables them to start their professional paths in the international competitive market while promoting intercultural dialogue and intergenerational links on international platforms.
Every year, young musicians from all over the world receive intensive training at the highest and, more importantly, the most personal level. With the opportunity to enrol into our academy, attend master classes, rehearse, and perform on international stages, they encourage the exchange of experience between young artists and renowned top-class soloists, performing on stages of diversity; to discuss and improve social, political, and environmental issues.
The Orchestra Academy
Our participants acquire the necessary technical and interpretative skills, build confidence in response, function and collaboration within the orchestra, knowledge of different styles and epochs, and learn how to adapt in a simulation of a professional working environment. The Orchestra Academy provides participants with intensive programmes that are collaborative with internationally renowned musicians, developing personal potential and gaining invaluable experiences for the future. The professional musicians also play concerts with young musicians, which is an invaluable experience and a unique opportunity for all, as it develops dynamics and supports the passion for musical reproduction. This educational programme has two important goals: refinement and excellence. With them, we set a high standard in orchestral performance in the most demanding programmes with multiple conductors and internationally renowned soloists.
We design master classes together with invited professors to offer young musicians top-level lessons, where they create and build up the music repertoire in excellent conditions, prepare for an important audition or competition, and refine their playing technically and musically. The basis of each course is the individual reworking of the participant’s chosen repertoire, where particular attention is paid to the musician’s artistic conviction.
Upgrading one’s repertoire is the disclosure of musical reproduction from different perspectives, both in solo and chamber literature, either in an ensemble or accompanied by a piano. Guest tutor pianists are selected by professors and are more than reliable collaborators during the programmes and at concerts. The success of the master class depends largely on the individual musician, who is our main focus and has our absolute attention.
Musicians are also proficient in their professional development and have access to content for active career planning, creation, and management. We have implemented some great programmes that equip young people with competencies, courage, and confidence. It is an insight into all levels of career counselling, vocational activity, and continuing vocational training, including gaining practical work experience. As our approach to connecting the digital era with classical music, our career workshops cater to the needs of young emerging musicians who are starting out their careers in the orchestral music field. We emphasize engaging in a personal conversation with young musicians who burn with passion but don’t quite know how to set their foot in the professional world. It is our mission to answer their questions and guide them on their path to developing their skills and building their successful professional careers.
