Course contents

This course provides students with techique, tone quality, intonation and performance skills in order to withstand competition in soloist, chamber and orchestra music. It guides the future artist to independence in implementing their own ideas and defending their thoughts. As the final bachelor's course it lies in the direction of the bachelor's graduation concert and completing of the bachelor's thesis in its final form. The etudes are selected in order to allow the selected bachelor's repertoire to be studied. Largely, this concerns those pieces most challenging - W.M. Smith and others. In the technical and recital aspects, maximum attention is given to execution and precision. The recitals, again, correspond to the repertoire of the graduation concert, but attention is focused on some compostions from periods or styles that have not, during study, been sufficiently practiced. Recitals - G.P. Teleman, A. Honegger, J. Haydn, J.N. Hummel.
