The festival will be held in and around the beautiful Concert hall “Auditori Josep Carreras” and the conservatory of Vila-seca, near Tarragona, Spain. Besides the great hall with its excellent Steinway D piano there are two smaller concert halls and many teaching rooms with grand- and upright piano’s. All participants have considerable time for practicing during the week.
Address: Conservatorio Municipal de Música, Av. Generalitat, 27, 43480 Vila-seca. Webpage of the Conservatory
Each participant will receive 4 individual masterclasses, each from a different professor. Preferences can be indicated in the application form (see link above). About 60% of all masterclasses will be public, so one can learn from the teaching of others as well.
There will be a few musical encounters on specific subjects, such as a certain piece or style. A few of these encounters will be scheduled as a group event in the afternoons. More information will follow.
Most of the artists will perform either a solo or shared recital. This means there will be outstanding concerts every day!
