Unfold the challenges and beauty of the second movement of Johannes Brahms' String Quartet No.2 in A minor, Op. 51.
In this master class, Sven Arne Tepl will explore, together with the musicians of the Nostos Quartet, an intriguing work: the slow movement of J. Brahms' second string quartet.
For two hours, Tepl will guide you through the world of this giant composer, touching on several aspects essential in ensemble playing, such as finding the right sound, the right language, intonation, style, interpretation and content of a piece.
In this master class, you will gain a fascinating insight into a process that usually takes place behind closed doors. You will receive an intimate impression of Tepl's technique and teaching style.
