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 2019 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 seventh 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 2019 instrumental tuition will be given on voice, piano, clarinet, trumpet, violin and cello.

Christoph Prégardien (voice)

Christoph Prégardien is one of the most distinguished lyrical tenors of our time and especially valued as a Lied singer. He regularly performs concerts and recitals around the world and plays with leading orchestras under conductors such as Daniel Barenboim, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Philippe Herreweghe, Ingo Metzmacher, Kent Nagano and Christian Thielemann. Since his successful debut as a conductor in 2012, he has also been conducting on a regular basis. His numerous recordings have been awarded with the Orphée d'Or, the Edison Award, the Diapason d'or and the German Record Critics’ Award, to name but a few. He holds a professorship at the Cologne University of Music.

 

Pavel Gililov (piano)

While still a student in St. Petersburg, the laureate of numerous competitions was giving concerts in the Soviet Union and other socialist countries. In 1978 he emigrated to the West and in the same year, he won the prestigious Viotti Competition in Vercelli. As a soloist he has performed with leading orchestras in the world's most significant cultural metropolises. He pursues his passion for chamber music in the Gililov Piano Quartet as well as in collaboration with numerous fellow musicians, such as Boris Pergamenschiko. He has educated a range of international award winners in his capacity as professor in Cologne and at the Mozarteum Salzburg. In 2005 he founded the Telekom Beethoven Competition and is artistic director as well as jury chairman.

Matthias Höfs (trumpet)

At just 18 years of age, Matthias Höfs became solo trumpeter of the Philharmonic State Orchestra Hamburg, a position he held for nearly two decades. In addition to his orchestral work, he is a member of the ensemble GERMAN BRASS, which successfully tours the world and was awarded the Echo Klassik in 2016. He writes “tailor-made" arrangements for the members of the ensemble, which are innovative, sustainable and serve as an inspiration to the brass world. Apart from his extensive concert career as a soloist and chamber musician, Matthias Höfs has also released numerous CDs. He has been a professor at the Hamburg University of Music and Theater (HfMT) since 2000.

Ingolf Turban (violin)

The violinist was still a student when he became first concertmaster of the Munich Philharmonic under Sergiu Celibidache. As of 1988, he focused on his solo career which led to collaborations with major conductors and orchestras across the globe. In addition to the great violin literature he is interested in the more unknown repertoire, which is documented on over 40 CDs. His commitment to the work of Niccolò Paganini and the complete recording of his violin concertos has been a major success. In 2005 he founded the chamber orchestra I Virtuosi di Paganini, dedicated to the virtuoso literature of Paganini and his contemporaries. He is a professor at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich.

Maximilian Hornung (violoncello)

At the age of 19, the internationally sought-after cellist won the German Music Competition and only two years later, as a member of the Tecchler Trio, was awarded first prize in the ARD Music Competition. When he was 23, he became solo cellist with the BR Symphony Orchestra (until 2013). Since then he has been performing as a soloist with renowned ensembles such as the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. His discography includes solo concerts and chamber music. He was awarded the Echo Klassik as Newcomer of the Year for his first album. Since 2018 he has been a professor at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich.

He has published a monograph as well as numerous essays and was a board member of the Gesellschaft für Musiktheorie. As a composer, his oeuvre ranges from solo pieces to chamber music and pieces for ensembles to orchestral work. Several of his award-winning pieces are available on CD or as radio recordings. Since October 2014, Bernd Redmann has been President of the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich. Since 2015, he has been artistic director of the International Summer School.

In addition to the standard repertoire, such as the concerts of Boccherini, Haydn, and Dvorak, his wide-ranging repertoire also includes lesser-known and highly virtuosic cello music, which he also has done first recordings of, by François Servais, Carl Davidoff, Alfredo Piatti and Julius Klengel, Wen-Sinn Yang is a professor at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich and has been artistic director of the International Summer School since its beginnings in 2013.

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.
