For the first time in 61 years, the International Weimar Master Classes have to be cancelled. The University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar deeply regrets this cancellation, which is due to the corona virus crisis. From July 17th to August 1st, twelve courses with international guest professors*, a large number of public concerts and the orchestra studio with the Jena Philharmonic Orchestra were supposed to take place.
The focus is now shifting to the Weimar Master Classes 2021, which are to be arranged in a somewhat expanded form as a large musical summer festival. Many courses are already planned, and some of the guest professors who will not be able to teach this year are also expected to attend.
The next Weimar Master Classes will take place from the 17 to 31 July 2021.
