The duets for 4 hands & 2 pianos

This GROUP WORKSHOP has very particular characteristics due to its ONLINE format, having been designed with the aim of providing a broad and practical approach in the didactic and artistic aspects of the repertoire of the PIANO with 4 hands and 2 pianos, and with the firm objective of bringing knowledge at different latitudes.

We consider that group teamwork of both teachers and students creates the right environment for the development of an intensive workshop of these characteristics.

Active students

• Up to 8 students will be accepted

• Active students must present two or three works (or more) of the repertoire for four hands and / or two pianos, freely selectable from the repertoire of universal academic music, academic Argentine or Latin American music, and popular folklore, tango and / or jazz.

• The Teachers may recommend a specific work or study to each duo so that they can develop it during the course period.

 • For active students who do not have their group training, the Masters will define them and their repertoire

Listeners students

• No student limits

• Listeners participate in all classes with the possibility of comments, questions and others by chat.

The intensive masterclasses will take place monthly and will be recorded and available to the students.

A personalized return will be made by the teachers to each student and duet.

OBJECTIVES

• To develop the concept of piano training in chamber music with a program of works that allow to expand the interpretation during the course, with the result of the final evaluation an ONLINE CONCERT will be held previously recorded of the selection of works by the active duets, since participation in concert is considered essential as a concrete fact of artistic development. We know that the face-to-face concert does not replace virtual participation, but given the current international circumstances, the Online Concert will allow us the didactic-artistic evaluation and contact with those who will follow this proposal.

• Develop and deepen technical skills through a background that enable the approach to repertoire of greater difficulty

• Promote and capture artistic development in chamber music in duets, methodically through execution, expanding the repertoire through perception and analysis.

• Promote creativity, the ability to listen, analysis and critical appreciation both individually and in groups.

• Know, understand and incorporate the aesthetic and interpretive characteristics of composers.

• Carry out an analysis of the technical resources necessary to approach the performance of the repertoire: Touché, dynamics, phrasing, agogia, sonority; pointing towards the individuality of the works

• Find and achieve the duet sound

• Develop the capacity of the concept of chamber music, to evolve in listening to the sound of the other, learning to "share" what we usually do individually on the piano.
