Czech violin and piano works
with an accent on the work of Leoš Janáček
Fri 21/6 – Sun 23/6 2024
Hukvaldy, Leoš Janáček Elementary School and Leoš Janáček’s Birthplace
Excellent Czech artists and sought-after pedagogues, violinist Ivan Ženatý and pianist Ivo Kahánek are returning to the festival, as its regular guests, to pass on their teaching and interpretation experience to students, future artists, in a master class. The reputation of both artists, as well as the progress and results of the three previous years, are a guarantee that the courses will be quite exceptional for all participants. The piano accompaniment in the violin section will be in the hands of one of the most experienced, doc. Stanislav Bogunia, pedagogue of the music faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. We invite all art school students and graduates to participate both actively and passively in the master course, which will take place from Friday 21/6 to Sunday 23/6.
Content and course of the class
The master course will focus on the study of piano and violin works by Czech composers with an emphasis on the work of Leoš Janáček in the authentic environment of the composer’s birthplace. Active participants are guaranteed a minimum of two teaching hours, but if necessary and according to current time possibilities, this subsidy can be extended – the main criterion for us is not the exact time, but the quality of the result. During the course, both active and passive participants will have the opportunity to take part in a guided tour of the Leoš Janáček Memorial, take a walk in the Master’s beloved Hukvaldy game reserve, visit the Hukvaldy castle, …
The master course will end with a concert by its participants.
The number of active participants is limited to twelve interested parties in both sections.

We will meet on Friday, June 21 at 2:00 p.m. in the hall of the Leoš Janáček Elementary School in Hukvaldy – Sklenov.
