MASTER CLASSES IN VIOLIN AND CHAMBER MUSIC

Interpretation Days

An effective way of imparting deep knowledge is to organise a day in which all students play the same work. By examining each student’s ideas in response to the same music, it is possible to identify and develop the skills and art of interpretation, stimulating different yet grounded performances.

Repertoire:
- all violin sonatas and concertos
- all chamber music for strings and piano

SEMINARS

JS Bach

The period instrument movement continues to provoke deep divisions in both the teaching and performing worlds, resulting in confusion among the student body. To interpret Bach on modern instruments in an authentic spirit requires knowledge of performance practices, notational conventions, and Baroque dances, coupled with a strong creative conviction.

Options:
- explorations of general performance issues
- master classes on the accompanied and unaccompanied works for violin and cello
- Baroque dance steps and Bach’s dance movements (all instruments)

Talking to the audience

A workshop in developing the content and delivery of talks addressed to concert audiences.

ORCHESTRA

Conducting the orchestra in rehearsal, guiding the players in issues of ensemble, balance, articulation, phrasing, style etc.

EXPLORATION CONCERTS

These unusual events, lasting anywhere from one hour to full concert-length, have been presented widely in the UK and US, including Lincoln Center and Wigmore Hall, as well as in France, Germany, Israel and Russia. Consisting of a performance preceded by a lively exploration of the music, Ruth Waterman guides new and sophisticated listeners alike into and beyond the notes, fostering a more profound and vital engagement with the culminating performance.
