2022-2023 Academic Year

Home > 2022-2023 Academic Year




Director General Paolo Petrocelli has announced the new 2022-2023 academic program for the Accademia Stauffer and the Stauffer Labs. Academic excellence and a unique catalog characterize the project sponsored by the Fondazione Stauffer, increasingly a point of reference among the world’s large international institutions for higher musical education.


  • Over 40 internationally-renowned artists, exceptional teachers and dozens of international partner institutions and organizations have come together to support the growth and development of the most innovative high-level musical education project in the world, all dedicated entirely to strings.


  • Alongside the Accademia Stauffer’s impressive faculty (maestros Salvatore Accardo, Bruno Giuranna, Antonio Meneses, Franco Petracchi and the Quartetto di Cremona), we find prestigious names from around the international music community, like Viktoria Mullova, Lawrence Power, Antoine Tamestit, Sol Gabetta, Steven Isserlis, Mischa Maisky, Alisa Weilerstein, Michael Barenboim, Aleksey Igudesman, Caroline Shaw, and new appearances such as violinists Pinchas Zukerman Vadim Repin, Gil Shaham, and Italian composer Giovanni Sollima. Special sessions will feature musicians Alexander Pavlovsky (violin, Jerusalem Quartet), Miguel da Silva (Viola, Quartetto Ysaÿe), Eckart Runge (cello, Quartetto Artemis), as well as Italian pianists Bruno Canino and Michele Campanella.


  • This academic year will also see the second edition of the Concertmaster Artist Diploma, the first advanced specialization course in the world, held by the top 10 concertmasters of Europe’s main orchestras. Last year saw more than 70 candidates, with only 10 selected. Today these alumni are already performing leading roles in prestigious international orchestras. Among this year’s new developments is the launch of special sessions together with violinist Francesca Dego (alumni of the Accademia Stauffer), conductors Daniele Rustioni and John Axelrod and the participation of the string section of the EUYO (European Union Youth Orchestra).


  • There’s also important news for the Stauffer Labs (creative departments for musicological research, composition, violin making, music production, artistic management and innovation). The New York Times will be collaborating for the Media Lab on music journalism. Giovanni Sollima will partner for the Composition Lab. Gregg Alf (an American luthier who studied in Cremona) is on board for the Lutherie Lab. Two international art agencies, IMG Artists and HarrisonParrott, will collaborate for the lab on artistic management, while the lab in Production will be held by professors of the SAE Institute in Milan and by award-winning music producer David Frost (winner of some 20 Grammy Awards).


  • Collaborations with important specialized ensembles and residences with major world universities are all set to continue, including partnerships with Yale University School of Music, Harvard University, the Royal College of Music in London, the University Saïd Business School of Oxford University, and the Sorbonne University of Paris, together for the first time on a single platform for higher musical education. Another important new development is the launch of a collaboration with the Juilliard School’s Center for Innovation in the Arts, partnering Stauffer with one of the most prestigious conservatories in the world.


  • This high-level training project is available to talented young musicians from around the world completely free of charge, thanks to the generous support of the Fondazione Stauffer.
