ACMP Presents Its First Interactive Live Stream Chamber Music Masterclass – exploring Piazzolla and Prokofiev

ACMP is presenting its first ever live stream masterclass, providing an up-close opportunity for players around the globe to engage and participate in this learning and playing opportunity. See press release. See Broadwayworld.com post.

In a two-hour masterclass, award-winning string quartet PubliQuartet will conduct back-to-back sessions with two learning quartets at the National Opera Center, New York City. A multi-camera crew will deliver every detail of the workshop in a close-up, real-time stream. Chamber music players wherever they are can participate in groups, ensembles, or individually on their computers and devices, gaining tips and insights into playing technique and interpretation on two chamber music works. Participants can also interact throughout the session via a live chat feed, connecting with the event and each other. Online participants will fully experience the session as if they were in the room.

One of the works featured, Oblivion for string quartet by Astor Piazzolla, will give participants an opportunity to gain tips and insights into the special demands of playing tango chamber music. The second work explored is the Prokofiev String Quartet No. 2 movement 2, an ACMP-member favorite. The learning quartets include a student ensemble from Mannes College, New York (Piazzolla), and Augmented 4 String Quartet, young musicians from Connecticut (Prokofiev). The masterclass will end with a performance by PubliQuartet.

Intended for adult amateur players and music students of all ages and levels, ACMP will provide a step-by-step guide for engaging in the masterclass either as an ensemble or individually,

Listen to a recording of Piazzolla’s Oblivion for string quartet played by Varazdinski Kvartet.
