Public masterclasses are yet another way that the Academy of Classical Music at the Dvořák Prague Festival is working to promote the education of musicians. As an ancillary programme in the series, For the Future, young musicians are given the chance to play before exceptional artists, performers who have invaluable experience on the world’s great stages, and to consult them about their views on the interpretation of a work. A masterclass is a unique opportunity for the public to witness the final phase of preparing an interpretation. Rather than a usual lesson, it is an exchange of artistic opinions. It provides exciting insight into the final phase of a young artist’s preparation, before the moment when that performer appears in the concert arena with a finished interpretive conception, in order to share an artistic opinion with the public.

The mentors at this year’s masterclasses will be important figures from the current festival. Their undoubted authority can influence the future course of musical thinking among the rising generation of performers.

Leading young violinists through selected violin works on 16 Sept. 2021 at 10 a.m. in the Rudolfinum’s Suk Hall will be the phenomenal violinist and teacher Dmitry Sitkovetsky, the first winner in the history of the Concertino Praga competition. He is also chairman of the jury for the finals of this year’s competition.
