Concert of the COLLUVIO Chamber Music Academy 2021
20 years of the COLLUVIO Chamber Music Academy – Master classes for chamber music including an international tour. Concert is supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum.
Since 2001 annual auditions for between 9 and 11 promising young musicians from all over Europe have been held for the colluvio Chamber Music Academy. Master Classes are held in Gut Hornegg, Styria, Austria, followed by an international concert tour that encompasses venues in the home countries of the participants.
The specialty of this meeting of differing cultural spheres is that the young musicians first get to know each other in Gut Hornegg, have never played together and then, within 10 days, are in a position to give live performances of ambitious chamber music works. Two factors enable them to do so: their high musical level plus the special “colluvio Method”.
