Welcome to Hvide Sande Masterclass 2020
Hvide Sande Masterclass is an international masterclass for young classical pianists, violinists, violists, cellists and chamber musicians– at and above academy level.
At Hvide Sande Masterclass 2020 you will have the opportunity to listen to highly qualified classical music at 8 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 join the ensembles in rehearsals and 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 14 years Hvide Sande Masterclass has made its name as a powerful centre for spreading the knowledge of classical music to a new audience i 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 studing 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 2020.
