WORKSHOP/CLASS ♦ East Bay ♦ July 23 – 29, 2017
SFEMS Classical Workshop
Haydn: Padre, Amico e Guido

Our theme this year is “Haydn: Father, Friend and Guide,” Mozart’s reverential reference to his mentor. We will explore the rich and wonderful musical world of Haydn and Mozart, as well as that of Haydn’s students including Beethoven. We will also delve into the works of composers who dedicated their music to Haydn.

The Classical Workshop invites string players, fortepianists and pairs of oboes, flutes, clarinets and bassoons to explore chamber music for strings, winds and keyboards. All ages and levels of experiences are welcome.

The Classical Workshop is America’s only workshop dedicated to late 18th-century performance practice. We meet for one week in July to explore string chamber music of the Classical era. Morning and afternoon coaching sessions by the New Esterházy Quartet are followed each evening by informal performances of the day’s repertoire. Private instruction and colloquia on bowing and fingering complement our program. The workshop invites string players of all ages and abilities. Pre-formed ensembles are welcome too.
