Vengerov, Schiff, Haitink: Masterclasses on DVD

img  Tobias

In their recent press release, the Masterclass Media Foundation has also announced the details for the first three volumes: Maxim Vengerov will work on Bach’s “Adagio and Fugue from Sonata No 1 in G Minor”, as well as Mozart’s “Violin Concerto No 3 in G Major, K216” among others. András Schiff will try to get his student to get the most out of a couple of Beethoven sonatas on a glorious double DVD. And Bernard Haitink also needs a full twofer in his bid to explore the depths of Brahm’s third symphony.

Violinist Maxim Vengerov explains his approach to the masterclasses: “It is not about you. It is not about the student even. It is about the music – and about how the music will help the student to open up.” According to Vengerov, these masterclasses even hold the chance of improving the student’s character through working on a particular composition: “You have to be sensitive enough to see the potential of the student in such short time. You have to be really sharp to say a few words, that might actually change the life of the student.” To see extracts of Vengerov, Haitink and Schiff in action, move over to the site of the Masterclass Media Foundation and register free of any charge.

In most recent news, the Masterclass Media Foundation has reveiled their association with the Rocal Academy of Music – which will allow then to maintain their status as a charity and give them access to masterclasses, international contacts and scholarly and consultative backup.
