15th-26th April
Music by the sea

Course of chamber music with Ruth Tüschner (Violin), Matyas Bartha (Violin), Ioanna Seira (Cello) and Imola Bartha (Piano)
We will be playing classical chamber music from Tschaikowsky, Beethoven, Schubert with different instrumentations, for example strings, wind section and piano.

Hellenikon Idyllion is a paradisiac place by the sea with a big garden, which contains several houses. There are a couple of half open rehearsal rooms with grand pianos.
The proprietary of Hellenikon Idyllion is a music-lover and had the chance to receive many chamber orchestras, ensembles and soloists from German-speaking countries. He is a committed host who wil organise several concerts in different places for us. During these concerts we will also perform music from Greek composers, so that we will get to learn about the country and the people in a fascinating way.

Matyas Bartha will be with us again, he is a member in a big orchestra and thus can give much expert advice.  The pianist Imola Bartha will lead the chamber music groups and the violinist Ruth Tüscher will be working with us as well. Every time it is amazing to see how much the group and the music evolves.
Children and adolescents, who play a string instrument for 5-6 years and who are between 12 and 18 years old, can register. The ensembles will be placed together according to level, age and experience in chamber music. 
We play string quartets, piano trios, violin duos and cello ensembles. In the chamber orchestra we all play together, advanced students can even try themselves out and play a solo. Klezmer music and Greek folklore music are planned as well.
You should possess good technical basics and you should be willing to prepare for the course with the notes that you will receive in time before you come to Greece.

The beach 10m next to our Hellenikon Idyllion 

You will be practicing 3-5 hours every day and in the breaks you can go for a swim (the sea will still be cool, but it will be warm enough for swimming), relax and enjoy the sun in the garden or even practice. We will eat our meals together in a great tavern clos to our house. Even if you do not know anybody, you are welcome in our “music family” and you will feel at home. In order to ensure the quality and this family atmosphere we do not want to take more than 18 participants.
Please apply early, so that we can get cheap flights for you. The music holiday will cost approximately 990,00 EUR including flight, transfer, accommodation and meals as well as daily instructions. We are looking for sponsors, so that the participation in this trip will be cheaper for everybody.
