After the successful classes in September 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022, the masterclasses of the European Hanseatic Ensemble will now enter their fifth year. Again, a team of internationally renowned teachers will work with young talented musicians during a four day masterclass dedicated to European music of the 16th and 17th centuries. The course will consist of individual lessons (2 x 45 minutes), furthermore there will be special emphasis on ensemble work. Repertoire for the masterclasses is to be prepared ahead of time and the pieces named in your application.

Please supply us with recordings of your musical work that can be forwarded to the teachers for the selection of the participants. Consider European works exclusively from the Renaissance and Early Baroque (no Händel, Bach, Vivaldi, etc.) and mention them as requested in the application form. The pieces do not need to have a conection to the Hanseatic cities. Please also note other important information on the audio material.

The music for the ensemble work will be chosen according to the selected participants. The sheet music will be sent to the participants in due time.
