Trombone and violin chamber music concert
Branimir Slokar Academy
The best participants of the soloists’ master classes at the Branimir Slokar Academy
Artistic direction: Branimir Slokar, trombone and Ivry Gitlis, violin
Master classes within the Branimir Slokar Academy offer an active participant a perfect insight into music literature with the guidance of excellent musicians. Ivry Gitlis, one of the last of the ‘golden generation’ of masters during the first half of the 20th century, has played with everyone from Jascha Heifetz to John Lennon. His words to young musicians: “Dear young colleagues of the up-and-coming generation, please have the courage to be yourselves, to take risks and not be copies of your recordings or of others’. Practice your instrument in order to free yourself from any psycho-technical constraint, to be able to create when you play. Listen to your inner ear, which is connected directly to your heart and spirit, the one that tells you what you feel is you! And the one you don’t feel isn’t you. Remember that a beautiful “wrong” note by a Kreisler, a Thibaud, a Casals or a Callas is worth more than a thousand so-called “right” notes and that playing that is hygienically and clinically correct is not necessarily a sign of good health! Take heart! Stay healthy!”
Branimir Slokar is regularly teaching at master classes around the globe. He is also known as an author of educational literature for beginners, as well as advanced trombonists. During his lengthy career, Branimir Slokar has brought forth a great number of outstanding trombonists.
The programme selection will be done as a result of work during the master class.
