VIOLA AND CHAMBER MUSIC

18 AUGUST / 31 AUGUST

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Course is open to viola soloists and pre-formed chamber music ensembles, starting from trios (duos with viola and piano are also permitted).

Should the course be held exclusively online, any ensemble wishing to participate will only be accepted in the case that all of its members are able to meet in the same space (be present via one connection).

Chamber music ensembles that have been together for at least a year may take advantage of the attendance fee reductions to which they are entitled.

During the Course students may perfect pieces of their own choosing by indicating them in advance on the Application Form.

Thanks to the collaboration with Le Dimore del Quartetto, the members of the ensemble can request to stay at one of the Tuscan Historical Residences at the total cost of € 200 + IVA for quartets and € 150 + IVA for trios. Since the various residences are located outside the city, it is necessary to have your own means of transport available. You can submit your request to take advantage of this opportunity by filling in the appropriate space on the registration form by April 30th, 2021. The granting of accommodation will be subject to the number of places available at the individual residences.
