IMB Proudly Presents:
Kenneth Kiesler (USA)
10th International Masterclass for Conductors
Vivaldi, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovitch, Elgar
November 2nd – 7th 2014
We are happy to celebrate our 10th masterclass with the world renowned “Mentor of Conductors,” Maestro Kenneth Kiesler. It is a rare opportunity in Europe to experience his highly regarded and important approach to teaching conducting. Kiesler, who is widely regarded for his interpretations of Shostakovitch and Mozart, has a long and distinguished history with string orchestras and string repertoire. He will dedicate this masterclass exclusively to string pieces from different periods; from the Baroque to the 20th century.
The course will be taught primarily in English, and secondarily in German. If you don’t speak these languages, and you would like to participate in the masterclass, we will make our best effort to provide a translator. Please mention that in your application.
All the sessions with the orchestra will be video recorded, and each participant will receive his or her videos on a 8 GB USB stick, which he or she may keep and take home with them.
We look forward to this exciting masterclass. You are very welcome to apply here.
