Clarinet Soloist course consists of two parts: individual lessons given by three Clarinet Soloists of “Orchestre de la Suisse Romande” and JAM sessions. Individual lessons are opened for all participants to attend. We discuss the basics of performing, questions of “school”, style, way of thinking and a general approach to music.
What makes it exciting for us is the fact that we learn together with our students. Due to our collegial approach to all musicians we remain open to discover together the depth of interpretation. Musicians bring any repertoire: concertos, chamber music and orchestra excerpts.
At our JAM sessions we unite with pianists and our invited guests to perform chamber music. This is a unique project, inspired by JAM-Sessions from Jazz tradition. Musicians are to prepare a list of standards, the usual chamber music repertoire with clarinet and piano, that every clarinetist should know: Weber, Schumann, Brahms, etc..
