Grafenegg Academy Orchestra

GENERAL PHILOSOPHY

Each summer the Grafenegg Academy forms a closely-knit community of exceptionally talented young professional musicians, tutors and staff who come together in an environment that is highly encouraging to intensive learning. The unique ambiance of castle, park and nature and the famous Lower Austrian hospitality offer a summer home to young musicians and invite concert-goers, internationally renowned soloists and musicians from renowned international orchestras alike. Grafenegg Academy is part of Campus Grafenegg the educational programme of Grafenegg Festival.

The approach of the Grafenegg Academy is a new, creative and ambitious one: it focuses on the exchange of artistic ideas, advanced artistic development, self-responsibility and freedom in playing together and the intensive, collaborative exploration of music. Free from the limitations of typical professional concert life, musicians at Grafenegg Academy have time to rehearse in great depth — under the guidance of outstanding master artists —, to share ideas and experiences, to explore a rich diversity of musical works.

The Grafenegg Academy will result in two concert days where concerts are played with the Orchestra as well as in ensembles with performances of chamber music works to show the work that has been done during the programme.
