The Art of Piano Performance
Stemming from Heinrich Neuhaus and Konstantin Igumnov piano lineage that perceives the art of piano performance as a poetic idiom, fascinating inspiration, and cultural component to express emotional, intellectual, and philosophical experience, Eteri Andjaparidze imparts these aesthetics in her teaching. The principles of the masterclass aim to guide students in their search for true mastery, where playing the instrument is identified as a spontaneous and effortless expression of spiritual freedom, and technical prowess is seen not as an end in itself but as a step to eloquent delivery of artistic message.
A series of open piano masterclasses with Eteri Andjaparidze explore a wide variety of musical styles, as well as offer a comprehensive survey of the piano chamber music repertoire. The series conclude with a gala featuring the best participants in performance.
