Summer Programme August 1 - 3
The Academy hosted a summer day programme from August 1 - 2 at the Stapleford Granary. The final day of the programme has been rescheduled for September 4 as one of the participants tested positive for Covid on the morning of August 3rd.
Academy resident tutors violinist Barbara Dziewięcka-Data and cellist Graham Walker are joined by international artists pianist Bobby Chen and violist Sarah-Jane Bradley. They play alongside students in rehearsing and performing the Dvorak Piano Quintet, Brahms viola quintet op 111, Schumann Piano Quartet, Beethoven String Quartet 18/4, Schubert Piano Trio D898 and Mozart Piano Quartet K 493.
String players get to play the Mendelssohn Octet in a “work-in-progress” session every morning. Masterclasses and chamber orchestra playing the Bach Double Piano Concerto in C major and Bach Brandenburg 3 round out each day.
