Violinists wishing to perfect their playing of a piece would certainly welcome the chance to have Václav Hudeček available as an advisor. And it is he who will lead public masterclasses with the participation of three talented violinists: Matteo Hager, Marie Hasoňová, and Olga Šroubková. Each of them will be performing one movement from Antonín Dvořák’s Violin Concerto and will be polishing their performance to perfection under Hudeček’s guidance. This will also be an encounter among close acquaintances – all three of the aspiring violin virtuosos have taken part at the Václav Hudeček Academy in Luhačovice, where the Czech school of violin playing has been fostered for more than twenty years.
Public masterclasses led by top artists are a fantastic opportunity for the young musicians themselves, but by no means for them only. They also offer a deeper insight into the composition and its performing to those listeners who believe themselves to be incapable of understanding music. For them, immediate contact with the fine tuning of a composition is not only instructive, but also exceptionally exciting and often even entertaining. It is like watching a glassblower creating a new work, shaping it smoothly into its final, perfect form.
