International Musicians Seminar 2020
ACADEMY CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19
With deep regret, we have to announce that the Masterclass Seminar and Spring concerts in Cornwall have been cancelled due to coronavirus. This is the first time in nearly 50 years that we have had to cancel a seminar, and we are deeply sad but the safety of all our participants, helpers, and the local community have to be our first concern.
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.
