Stefan's Sessions

Stefan's Sessions

In-Depth Explorations of Violin Masterworks


Applications for the fourth session (Mozart Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major) are now open!

I am so excited to launch my new online academy! Stefan’s Sessions will be structured as a series of episodes. In each episode, I will take viewers on a deep dive into one masterpiece of the violin repertoire. I will be joined by three up-and-coming violinists, who will each perform one movement from the work. The fourth episode in the series will be devoted to Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major.

The outstanding young violinists joining me each episode will be chosen via online application, and each musician will perform a movement of the piece live on Zoom. After each performance, I’ll provide a brief analysis of the movement, we’ll discuss various possible interpretations of the music, technical solutions to tricky passages, and I’ll also offer tips and tricks to get the most out of a performance of the piece. At the end of each episode, we’ll open up the session to viewer questions regarding the repertoire of the day, general violin technique, and career advice.

WHEN IT TAKES PLACE

Applications are open for Episode 4 of Stefan’s Sessions! The fourth episode of the series will air on November 15 on Zoom, and will feature Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 in A Major. The deadline for applications is November 7. Future episodes to be announced!
