September 27th, 2008 in Piano News by

Not only are piano competitions such as the Van Cliburn YouTube-competition and the Minnesota e-Competition moving out onto the web, but students, music colleges, schools and all music lovers now have the chance to gain inspiration and to learn from master classes given by some of the world’s greatest musicians.

The Masterclass Media Foundation is a charity that is creating a unique archive of master classes, many of which will be available on DVD and as Internet downloads. With an estimated 30-40 hours of master classes issued every year, these will form an invalualbe teaching resource for the present and succeeding generations and a means by which the insights and genius of the world’s great musicians of our time can be shared with students all over the world as well as being preserved for posterity.

Magister Musicae

Founded by Fundacion Albeniz in collaboration with Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía and with project support from the EU cultural funds, some 3000 hours of master classes in English and Spanish (with English subtitles), with some 20 internationally renowned pianists, will be presented, along with master classes with other instrumentalists and conductors.
