BSA Academy

Young musicians from all over the world receive intensive education at the highest but also the most personal level. Within various phases in a symphonic orchestra, at individual, sectional or tutti rehearsals, but also at concerts, their work is led and accompanied by mentors. The invaluable experience of playing and cooperating with mentors throughout the rehearsals and at concerts develops the dynamic and supports the passion in music performance. The Orchestra Academy participants get the necessary technical and interpretive skills, the confidence in re-acting and collaboration within the orchestra, the knowledge of different styles and manners of playing, the knowledge of adjusting, etc. The Orchestra Academy is held throughout two years in ten working phases. The aim of several phases is the continuous work and performance of the orchestra, in which young musicians gain an enormous amount of knowledge about orchestra performance and connectivity within the orchestra.

The Orchestra Academy enables young musicians to work intensively within an orchestra with international musicians, to develop their potential and gain invaluable experience for their future endeavors. The educational program of the academy has two aims: improvement and excellence. These set high standards for the orchestra performance of the most demanding programs with different conductors and internationally distinguished soloists. The repertoire is diverse and purposed for different ensembles, from the biggest symphonic orchestra to a chamber group without the conductor.

We created the master classes together with the finest professors with the desire to offer young musicians’ lessons at the highest level, to give them the possibility to use the excellent conditions to create and develop musical repertoire, to prepare for an important audition or competition, and both technically and musically improve their playing. Particular attention is paid to enrich the musicians’ art of persuasion; therefore the selected musicians perform in a concert within the Ljubljana Festival.

The master class offers the participant a unique experience that is very different from the traditional study process. The Academy Branimir Slokar ensures that each participant gains most from the lessons, therefore we provide a superb accompanist, quality training facilities 14 hours a day, the possibility of passive participation in other participants’ lectures and other master classes, a video of the final concert and much more.

The basis for each of the master classes is the individual work on the repertoire, chosen by the participant, the upgrade of the repertoire though is the revealing of the music performance from various perspectives, for either the soloist or chamber literature, in ensembles of the same instruments or with the piano accompaniment.

The guest pianists are selected by the professors and are very reliable co-workers at the master class and in concerts. Pianists contribute a great share to the success of the master class and therefore the best cooperation needs to be established.
