Concert of the COLLUVIO Chamber Music Academy 2024

13.08.2024., 20:00

Young talents from all over Europe present masterpieces of chamber music in the following cities: Gut Hornegg, Vilpolže, Ljubljana, Feldafing, Pressbaum, Vienna, Budapest and Belgrade. Last concert of the tour will be held at the Italian Institute of Culture in Belgrade (56 Kneza Miloša Street) starting at 20:00.

Since 2001 annual auditions for between nine and eleven 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 ten 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”.
“Together in Europe” and polishing prerequisites in Chamber Music performance
The speciality of meeting participants from differing cultural backgrounds. – The young musicians get to know each other first at Gut Hornegg, have never played together before and are able after 10 days to bring the most challenging chamber music works to a high standard of performance. Two factors make this possible: their high musical standard coupled with the specially tailored “colluvio” method.
