A joint venture of the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München in collaboration with the Bad Reichenhall Philharmonic and the Bavarian State Spa Bad Reichenhall,

Kur-GmbH Bad Reichenhall/Bayerisch Gmain

In 2018 the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München in collaboration with the Bad Reichenhall Philharmonic and the Bavarian State Spa Bad Reichenhall, Kur-GmbH Bad Reichenhall/Bayerisch Gmain is holding an International Summer School for the sixth time. This combines master classes given by leading international lecturers and an extensive programme of concerts with the unique flair of the spa town of Bad Reichenhall in the foothills of the Alps.

 

Located in an impressive landscape, Bad Reichenhall, with its royal spa gardens and magnificent concert halls, has a truly picturesque setting. The town also enjoys a long musical tradition, and with the Bad Reichenhall Philharmonic, has the only philharmonic spa orchestra in the whole of Germany. The International Summer School is held during the festival »AlpenKlassik« entirely devoted to classical music, in which lecturers and students take part in public chamber music and orchestral concerts each evening.

 

The focus is on the intensive nurturing and development of students participating.

The International Summer School places the emphasis on quality, rather than quantity: it offers students four guaranteed hours (à 45 min) of individual tuition, the chance of participation in chamber concerts in the regular concert programme of the Bavarian State Spa Bad Reichenhall, and the opportunity to perform as soloist with the Bad Reichenhall Philharmonic.

 

In 2018 instrumental tuition will be given on piano, flute, bassoon, violin, viola and cello.

Christian Simonis

(Conductor Bad Reichenhall Philharmonic)

Born in Vienna in 1956, Christian Simonis studied in his hometown after his time as a member of the Vienna Boys’ Choir. At 17 years of age, he founded the Jeunesse-Kammerorchester (1973-1980). Prof. Hans Swarowsky described him as being a »typical Viennese talent«. He was chief conductor of the Bad Reichenhall Philharmonic (1985-1990), the Göttinger Symphony Orchesta (1990-2005) and the Mitteldeutsche Kammerphilharmonie (2005-2013). Simonis is familiar with all epochs and genres of music, but the light muse has a special place in his musical life. This prompted the Bad Reichenhall Philharmonic to appoint Christian Simonis as its chief conductor again in 2015.
