Tel-Hai International Piano Master Classes
Dear participants and audience,
Due to social distancing, flight restrictions, and other consequences of Covid-19, it is with a heavy heart that we are forced to cancel the regular format of this year's Tel-Hai Master Classes. We have been investigating our options and are currently working to offer an alternative course for this summer. More details regarding the course and the registration will be announced ASAP.
Tel Hai Master Classes join the world’s musical community in celebrating the 250-th birth anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven.
*Prof. Jeffrey Swann, who performs and has recorded the composer’s 32 piano sonatas, will give a talk on Conceiving, Preparing, and Performing the complete Beethoven Sonatas: "The Pianist's Mt. Everest".
*A celebratory public concert, featuring Beethoven’s works for the piano as well as chamber music with piano, will be held. Should the number of works ready for performance require, the framework of the concert may be extended to a marathon format.
*Beethoven's song cycle An die Ferne Geliebte will be featured in this year's Art Song Workshop.
*A special prize for the most impressive performance of a Beethoven composition at the Classes will be awarded.
*A work by Beethoven is to be featured in the program of the concluding Gala concert in Tel Aviv.
SO – BRING YOUR BEETHOVEN TO TEL HAI!
