The Collaborative Pianist is a masterclass dedicated to the role of the pianist in chamber music.
The masterclass, open to chamber music ensembles with piano, is divided into two parts: the first is reserved for pianists, who will study the proposed pieces to deepen their awareness of their part. String instrumentalists are encouraged to attend as auditors so as to better understand the pianist’s technical and performance needs; they can then join in the second part of the course for an ensemble study of the proposed pieces.
