Course information

The master classes in Utrecht are organised in collaboration with the Festival Oude Muziek and will take place during the festival.

All classes have three full teaching days of 5 – 6 hours. The morning sessions are open to the festival public as auditors and will take place between 9 – 12. The afternoon sessions will take place between 14:30 – 18 and are open only to the students. The exact hours will be confirmed later.

Each active student will receive a festival pass with free access to all the concerts during the festival (excluding concerts that are sold out). The master class schedule is designed in a way that allows the students to attend most of the concerts, especially the daily harpsichord recital at 13:00. For this reason practice time is limited during the class. Students are accepted to take part in one master class only as an active student. However, active students can attend all the other master classes as an auditor free of charge.
