ACADEMY

The International Summer Academy Piano Summer has been offering top class educational programs for several years. The participants of the courses are university professors, laureates of major competitions, well-respected artists and students from around the world.
PIANO SUMMER hosts the biggest names in classical music who have the
opportunity to convey their skills and musical artistry daily on stage in a relaxed and a very pleasant atmosphere, that the city of Vranje offers.
Thus, a very successful, intense and interesting working process has become a magnet for artists who are eager for professional development.
In addition to interpretation classes, the academy aims to offer educational programs for pupils from different music schools, students and teachers.
The president of the Summer Academy is Professor Klaus Schilde from Munich, the doyen of German piano traditions, a longtime professor of music academies in Berlin, Tokyo, Detmold and Weimar and the dean of the music academy in Munich as well.
The main objectives of our summer academy are:
• working on the interpretation of musical works
• preparation for competitions and entrance exams
• performing practice and the acquisition of concert experience
• making their live repertoire
• culture and tradition of performing chamber music
• promoting Serbian musical creativity
Besides solo repertoire, participants will have the opportunity to perform piano
concerts and chamber music in collaboration with special guests of the festival-ensemble “Constantinus” from Niš.
One of the highlights of the Academy is the fostering of contemporary music. This is foreseen in the course of the festival with several premiere performances.
Within the Summer Academy several lectures on specialized topics will be held.
In addition to active participation with these programs, passive participation is very much welcomed.
