Strings Program in Germany

    • The Strings Program is extensive, intensive. and unique. It is designed with elements of the Russian school to boost students to the next level of playing. The beauty of their surroundings and cultural experience is ideal for artistic growth.

    • Each student receives two private lessons per week with an internationally-renowned artist faculty member.

    • All participants are preselected into chamber groups and assigned to partners and repertoire choices according to level, matched well in advance. Instrumentalists receive two fourty-five minute chamber coachings per week with an artist faculty member with their chamber group(s).

    • Nikolaj Znaider, violin
      After the sensational success at InterHarmony last year, Nikolaj Znaider will be returning to Sulzbach -Rosenberg. He will perform Brahms' Double Concerto with our Music Director and Founder, Misha Quint and give a violin masterclass. Nikolaj Znaider is the most celebrated performer of our time soloing regularly with such orchestras as the Staatskapelle Dresden, Cleveland Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and Chicago Symphony. The 2017/18 season sees Znaider continue his Mozart recording project with the London Symphony Orchestra with the second and third concertos directed from the violin. This gives students a chance to perform for and with the master.

      Cosmopolitan String Trio
      The appearance of Cosmopolitan String Duo at InterHarmony Outstanding Guest Artist Series creates an important and long-awaited bridge between Vienna and Sulzbach-Rosenberg. Internationally acclaimed soloist and chamber musicians Elisabeth Kropfitsch and Meehae Ryo spend time with young musicians frequently, giving numerous masterclasses and workshops covering every aspect of playing, from handling an instrument to actual interpretation on stage. Their performance of Handel Passacaglia and Ravel Duos will be combined with cello and violin master classes.
