quality through interactive inspiration

The nine participants constitute a musical working group. Right from the beginning, the concert-orientated playing of music prevails. On the very first day, each of the 3 ensembles will perform its complete programme in front of all participants and teachers – it will become obvious which areas need attention. On most of the evenings, there will be training concerts (house concerts) after practising in a friendly, sociable atmosphere; most of the time, each ensemble performs its complete programme. These daily presentations give each of the 3 ensembles the possibility to see the actual state of things, the progress but also the remaining work to do for the following days. For the young musicians, this direct contact with reality is very important. If the teachers should consider it necessary there will be a meeting afterwards to analyse the performance in order to profit from the experience for training and performing the next day.

This makes it possible for each participant to recognise every day how the individual and the ensemble’s performances have improved. This procedure prevents from having a competitive atmosphere within the ensembles but instead facilitates a dynamic exchange of experiences. There will be a last house concert with a bigger audience as a final rehearsal before the tour.

By having these daily concerts and the following concert tour, colluvio enables young musicians to gain a praxis-orientated musical experience which they would not obtain in a comparable chamber music class of this intensity.

The few hours without classes will be used to practise individually – the common experience and the musical responsibility motivate the participants to this additional commitment.
