TEN ARGUMENTS FOR TAKING PART

WHO COULD RESIST?

 

  1. Make music with musicians from all over the world. The diversity of the Campus participants’ countries of origin, ages and education levels enables a direct, interdisciplinary exchange of experience that overcomes all boundaries and results in a farreaching network.

  2. Learning from each other. Musicians have much to gain from dialogue. Collegial learning is at the centre of making music at Campus Grafenegg.

  3. A range of exciting Music Labs offers musicians all the extra knowledge that is essential for their specialist training but that is seldom conveyed during term time. Subjects covered amongst others will include repertoire, context, performance anxiety and audience development.

  4. Famous tutors from world-class orchestras such as the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Concertgebouw Orchestra, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and BBC Symphony are there to work with the students, offering their full commitment, along with members of famous chamber-music ensembles (Meta4, Boulanger Trio, Artis-Quartet Vienna) and this year’s Composer in Residence of the Grafenegg Festival, Peter Ruzicka.

  5. Sound meets scenery. Anyone who has been to Grafenegg has been struck by the breath-taking scenery. With beautiful nature, castle and stately park on the one hand and superb gastronomy on the other, this is the perfect place both to soak up the atmosphere and to engage in serious music-making.

  6. Living, learning and performing combine in Grafenegg over 32 hectares of grounds between the Castle, Wolkenturm, Cottages and Auditorium. Notwithstanding all the focus on working, the need for sociable downtime with colleagues isn’t forgotten. Renewing old friendships and creating new ones are also part of the personal balance sheet that all participants take away with them from Grafenegg.

  7. Exceptional performance venues. The historical and contemporary concert-hall architecture that Grafenegg offers – its Castle, Auditorium and open airstage Wolkenturm – means rehearsal and performance venues with a unique ambiance and excellent acustics.

  8. Additional performance opportunities are offered as part of the diverse Campus programme with Music Galleries, Music in the Park, Preludes and Late Night Sessions as well as other events in and around Grafenegg.

  9. Concerts in the Wolkenturm and Auditorium not only attract an international audience but are also open to Campus participants free of charge during their residencies.

  10. Become part of an excquisite network as alumni of the Campus Grafenegg. Acquaintances made with colleagues here can form the basis of future artistic partnerships and friendships.
