About the Workshop

As a kickoff to the festive season, ClassiCosy is delighted to be organizing a Christmas Chamber Music Workshop!

This workshop will be held 18-19 December 2021 in Geneva, Switzerland.

Thanks to financial support received from ACMP for previous workshops, ClassiCosy may continue to offer regular chamber music workshops for amateur musicans, who benefit from outstanding coaching from renowned professional musicians:

Marie-Barbara Berlaud, viola

Pierre Fouchenneret,  violin

Thomas Ravez, cello

The workshop is open to adult amateur chamber musicians, who play strings, wind instruments or the piano. Participants are expected to have chosen at least two movements in any given repertoire (approx. 20 minutes of music), and to have practiced together in pre-formed ensembles prior to the start of the workshop. The coaching provided by the workshop will lead to participants perfecting their individual technical playing skills, improving their practice of ensemble playing, and their musicianship.

During the workshop, participants will be given 2 or 3 coaching sessions (each 1h30 long). Each group will be taught by two or three different coaches, thus, ensembles will benefit from different approaches and insights to the pieces they are preparing.This encourages participants keeping an open mind and raises their awareness as to the different possible interpretations and understandings of the music they are playing.
