Masterclasses

The masterclasses are scheduled to run from August 1 through August 5, August 7 and August 8.  The application fee is 50€, regardless of which masterclass(es) you choose.

You can apply to a masterclass with a professor of your choice for a 6-day period (full time) or a 3-day period (half time), which cost 600€ and 300€ respectively.

It is possible to subscribe to two masterclasses (two different professors).  In this case, you can only take the half time option with each masterclass, so the cost price is 300€ for each.  The application fee needs to be paid only once.

A chamber music masterclass costs 300€ per individual (full time).  You need to apply with three, four or five people.  This cannot be combined with another masterclass.

International Young Talent Music Competition
