Ötztal Meisterkurs

About us

The Ötztal Masterclass is aimed at violinists who want to spend a week intensively learning from the best in their field. Embedded in the picturesque high mountain landscape of the Ötztal valley (Tyrol), the course participants can fully concentrate on music and further develop their talent.

In addition to individual lessons with the instructors, experienced musicians of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, participants will have the opportunity to take part in a simulated audition and the final concert. A list of orchestra excerpts to be prepared will be sent to all active participants before the course begins. Active participation in the Ötztal Masterclass is an optimal preparation for auditions, entrance or final exams, but also offers the opportunity to work on one's repertoire and to make contacts.

During the masterclass, all active and passive participants have the opportunity to take advantage of mental training and individual stage coaching. The techniques learned in group and individual lessons can be tested immediately in the audition simulation and in the final concert. In addition, the personal assistant of the lecturers is available to the participants, with whom individual technique and practice units are on the programme.
