July, 13 – September, 1 2018

By now, the String Academy has become integral part of Gstaad Menuhin Festival. Excellent teachers like Igor Ozim, Wonji Kim, Ettore Causa or Ivan Monighetti share their knowledge and longstanding experience in one-to-one lessons 

Of particular value for the students is furthermore the opportunity to perform alongside their professors. Being inspired by Yehudi Menuhin‘s approach, Gstaad String Academy follows the tradition of a final chamber music concert, involving one of the professors per each ensemble.

The master class will be open to public audition. Final concerts will take place at the Hotel Landhaus in Saanen and in the Chapel of Gstaad.

The active participants in the master classes will also have the opportunity to attend various outstanding concerts during the festival week (tickets based on availability and pre-booking).
