Join us for a live stream masterclass featuring Oblivion by Astor Piazzolla and Prokofiev's popular String Quartet No. 2 (2nd movt). The masterclass is free and accessible from anywhere in the world. In ACMP's first ever virtual program, PubliQuartet will guide two quartets in a string quartet masterclass. Chamber music players at all levels can participate remotely, individually or in groups, and post questions and comments through a live chat feed.
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 from VirtualArtsTV will deliver every detail of the workshop in a close-up, real-time high-quality 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.
Exploration of 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 featured in the masterclass is Prokofiev's popular String Quartet No. 2, 2nd movement. 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 featuring Piazzolla’s Libertango (Arr. Curtis Stewart); Meredith Monk’s Stringsongs movement 4 Phantom Strings, and Jessie Montgomery’s Voodoo Dolls. PubliQuartet will provide brief background and performance insights for each piece.
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.
