Don’t miss the next ‘Stauffer Talk’: a live streaming conversation with Antoine Tamestit and Uxía Martínez Botana! On 25 November at 6 PM CET from the Stradivari Hall of the Stauffer Center, French violist Antoine Tamestit and Spanish double bassist Uxía Martínez Botana will talk about their upcoming projects and share key ideas geared towards the future of music.
Antoine Tamestit is internationally recognised as one of the world’s greatest violists – both as a soloist and as a concert and chamber musician. Besides his unparalleled technique and intense musicality, he is known for the depth and richness of his sound. His repertoire is extensive, ranging from Baroque to contemporary, and Antoine Tamestit has also performed and recorded many world premieres. Tamestit is at the Stauffer Centre for Strings for a masterclass from 24 to 26 November. During these intense days of lessons, students will be able to present a concerto of their choice, perfecting all the details from a technical, expressive and analytical point of view, through a reasoned study of the score, as well as preparing themselves to better understand the links and relationships that can be created with the orchestra and conductor. In addition, they will have the opportunity to participate in presence in Thursday’s talk.
Selected by the American magazine No Treble as one of the 10 best double bass playerss in the world and recognised by international critics for her “great intensity and exceptional technique”, Uxía Martínez Botana is a first part of the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra, a professor at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya, the Barenboim Said Academy and now at the Stauffer Center for Strings. From 23 to 27 November, Uxía will hold his first masterclass in Italy, focusing on solo repertoire and orchestral pieces, providing students with the right tools to prepare for orchestral auditions.
