One of the missions of the Ljubljana Festival is the nurturing of young musicians, which partly takes place through the organisation of masterclasses. Among the guest teachers who return each year are cellist Jens-Peter Maintz, a member of the prestigious Spectrum Concerts Berlin ensemble; violist Hartmut Rohde, an honorary member of the Royal Academy of Music in London; double bassist Rick Stotijn, who has performed world premieres of works by contemporary composers; and bassoonist Ole Kristian Dahl, since 2017 a visiting professor at the Royal College of Music in London. These outstanding educators will present an interesting programme that includes two works by Ludwig van Beethoven, a key contributor to the development of chamber music; a sonata by Gustav Schreck, who as choirmaster improved the artistic quality of musical performance at the famous St Thomas School in Leipzig; pieces by Robert Schumann, whose music tells fairy tales in an almost programmatic manner; and, to complete the evening, a tango by Astor Piazzolla, whose music incorporates elements of jazz and classical music. The performers will be accompanied by the pianists Rie Shimada, who is employed at the Mannheim University of Music and Performing Arts; Ken Nakasako, who works in Berlin; Zsuzsa Bálint, who specialises in experimental projects; and winner of many piano and chamber music competitions Naoko Sonoda.
