Samobor, CROATIA, 18 – 30 August 2018

Thanks to its previous concept with plenty of cultural events since 2011 up to now, Youngmasters has established itself as the most attractive summer school in this area. Proven interesting to students from many different countries, it brings together lecturers and young musicians of international reputation.

This August Samobor will be filled with sounds of guitar, violin, viola, violoncello, piano, flute, saxophone and clarinet under the artistic leadership of brilliant artists and teachers: Petrit Çeku, Lukasz Kuropaczewski, Tobias Stosiek, Nataša Veljković, Nenad Merle, Tomislav Vukšić, Krešimir Bedek, Lovro Merčep, Pedro Ribeiro Rodrigues, Maja Fleischman, Mihael Paar, Marko Zupan and Wladimir Kossjanenko.

The diversity of Youngmasters lays not only in the choice of instruments, but also in the expert, artistic and educational facilities offered to the participants and their teachers. In addition to the existing methods of teaching, such as individual lessons, chamber and orchestral music, since last season we offer less demanding program named Summer orchestra. The students of guitar or string instruments who are foremost fond of this form of musical creativity could participate in guitar or string orchestras without necessarilly beeing active participants of any other course or masterclass. Furthermore, we remind you that Youngmasters offers the opportunity to discover new acoustics and inspiring venues. Besides the “short form” concerts with prominent musical artists in the festival’s part of Youngmasters, the students will enjoy in the recital of the winner of Youngmasters Excellent Concert. This abundance of cultural events will be offered to the young musicians, making their sojourn in Samobor completely fulfilled. Eventually, through the final performances, each student themselves will take part in this festival of music celebration.
