Collaborative Piano Orvieto

Collaborative Piano! June 16 – July 6, 2024 in Orvieto, Italy

Collaborative Piano Orvieto is an intensive three-week program for talented graduate and post-graduate pianists interested in increasing their collaborative, artistic, and technical skills by rehearsing and performing with Orvieto Musica singers and instrumentalists.

Recent programming has included Brahms’ Piano Quartet in A Major, op. 26, André Previn’s Four Songs, Adolph Busch’s Drei Lieder, Max Bruch’s Rumänische Melodie and Brahms’ Liebeslieder Walzer. You will perform with strings, voice and possibly some trumpet or tuba while in Orvieto.  Lessons will be offered from the piano faculty in week one to set up the entire festival for success.

Participants will emerge from this program with increased knowledge of and experience with the vocal and instrumental collaborative repertoire and professional versatility.
