Welcome to Hvide Sande Masterclass 2021
At Hvide Sande Masterclass 2021 you will have the opportunity to listen to highly qualified classical music at 9 public concerts. The music will be played by the masterclass professors and this year’s eminent participants. The participants in Hvide Sande Masterclass will be chosen by the masterclass professors among the very best young classical talents here and abroad.
Focus will be on chamber music interplay and the professors will coach while they join the ensembles, both at rehearsals and in concerts. Children and young people will be invited to attend rehearsals and concerts for free, and there will be a pedagogical introduction for them and all other listeners.
For 15 years Hvide Sande Masterclass has made its name as a powerful centre for spreading the knowledge of classical music to a new audience in western Jutland. Here the experience of the beautiful, harsh landscape splendidly complements the experience of classical music at a high national and international level.
Here, by meeting other young musicians from all over the world, young classical talents from Danish music academies have been inspired to further studies through personal friendships, chamber music interplay and the many joint concerts, all of which is the effect of staying and studying with eminent professors at Hvide Sande Masterclass.
Year after year, people from all over the country as well as tourists have flocked to Hvide Sande Masterclass to attend the many concerts and the open rehearsals. It is our intention to continue and strengthen this work by arranging Hvide Sande Masterclass – also in 2021.
I am very happy to be allowed to welcome you all to Hvide Sande Masterclass 2021. You, the hopeful, young, hand-picked musician who has fought to rehearse all the many, difficult works. You dear professor, who comes with your many years of experience from numerous concerts and hours with your instrument. And of course you, who come to experience the music in all its glory in a completely different concert hall.
I hope you will have an invigorating musical experience which you can look forward to and happily look back on.
