The Masterclass with Jorma Panula is well on it's way. The past few days, the focus of the repertoire was Till Eulenspiegel from Strauss, and the Dance Suite by Bartók, besides the 3rd Symphony of Brahms. Beautiful music, played by the skilled MÁV Symphony Orchestra, under the supervision of a great Maestro.
The final concert arrived again much sooner, than one would have expected. An intense and demanding week behind, it is time to say thank you for Maestro Jorma Panula, the MÁV Symphony Orchestra, our wonderful students, and the many spectators at the National Museum Celebration Hall.
Each time, video sessions make an important part of the Masterclass Budapest. During these session, the participants can watch the videos of the morning session with the orchestra, and get valuable feedback immediatelly from Maestro Panula, and very often from each other.
