About Our Workshops and Master Classes
Welcome to the 2012-2013 season of the workshops and master classes presented by Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute.
Designed to meet the artistic and professional needs of emerging artists, these programs provide valuable access to world-class artists who frequent the stages of Carnegie Hall. Up-and-coming performers receive coaching and career mentoring from celebrated faculty, plus performance opportunities as part of Carnegie Hall's Now Arriving concert series and in public master classes on the Hall's stages.
The internationally renowned Takács Quartet invited three young ensembles-the Attacca, Linden, and Spruce string quartets-to explore works of Haydn, Beethoven, and Bartók in their multi-day workshop. The workshop has included coaching sessions with each member of the Takács Quartet and discussions of the broader dimensions of a chamber music career with leaders from the worlds of academia and artist management. Capping the week are a public master class and a young artist recital, both shared by the three participating quartets and presented in Weill Recital Hall. We celebrate and admire the dedication of these young artists and hope they inspire you to investigate and pursue your passions.
We hope you will also join us this season for concerts in Zankel Hall on April 24 and 25 associated with a workshop on new American music led by composer John Adams and conductor David Robertson. Wide-ranging videos of workshops and master classes from previous seasons are available online, including sessions with Kaija Saariaho, Christian Tetzlaff, Leon Fleisher, James Levine, the Kronos Quartet, and others.
