Academy 2021: Schedule of events

Daily private lessons

Due to international travel restrictions and the Delta variant of the Corona virus, we conducted a modified version of the Academy. The participation of invited guest artist Pierre Goy from Switzerland had to be postponed until next year. Instead, we offered a residency program to young professionals, who presented a lecture recitals and made a video of a performance at the Museum. In addition, fortepiano students received private lessons, open masterclasses, and participation in a final concert. 
Highlights of the 2021 Academy were shown in the October International Fortepiano Salon.
