Masterclasses 2017 - Sunday 2 April to Sunday 23 April
"Having been to IMS Prussia Cove as a student and a teacher over the last thirty years, I cannot think of a better place for holding Masterclasses. The spirit that Sándor Végh has instilled has been carried on and I hope we can keep it and pass it on to future generations."
The Masterclasses are held each spring for three weeks, and over one hundred participants are involved every year. The classes have been running since 1972, when Sándor Végh first invited his students to come to Cornwall and study with him. The seminars provide a totally professional atmosphere and aim to foster the highest level of advanced study, drawing inspiration from the central-European tradition. String players predominate, with solo and string quartet classes, but also an important part of the course is the "Piano in Chamber Music" class, encouraging established ensembles ranging from duo to quintet.
