Our enthusiasm and passion for chamber music is so fervent that we wish to share it and to pass our knowledge on to others!
This is why teaching has been a key aspect of our work for many years now. During our regular workshops we explore the artistry of playing as a string quartet, as well as the highly diverse means of expression and communication offered by chamber music.
With our offer we want to address students of music as well as lay musicians, no matter whether young or old. If you are interested in our workshops please contact the respective organizer of the event or approach us directly under info(at)diogenes-quartett.de.
1.8. – 6.8.2022 Internationale Streichquartettwoche Nußdorf am Inn 2022
Every year in the beginning of August the Upper Bavarian town of Nussdorf turns into a “magical stronghold” for chamber music. Passionate non-professional musicians from far and wide travel to this idyllic place where they can indulge in their special passion, the string-quartet. The course offers lessons on a professional level with an accomplished quartet as well as intense practice-sessions. In addition the participants can get together in different group- formations. The meals are a true highlight, a real contribution to everybody’s well-being!
CONCERTS AT SCHOOL
The String Quartet is considered to be “the royal discipline” of classical music. But what actually is a string-quartet? What makes it so special? How does it sound? Which composers have written for this formation? How does this music sound?
When we perform in schools we like to take the children on a musical tour through all the different kinds of music composed over the past centuries. This is one way of answering their questions. The students also experience how music has changed over the past centuries. Furthermore, they encounter a number of familiar as well as unfamiliar music. And one thing becomes quite clear: string-quartets can be a number of things, but one thing is certain: they are never, never boring!
