Masterclass with Lior Shambadal

IMB Proudly Presents:

Ludwig van Beethoven

May 25th – 30th 2014 with M° Lior Shambadal and the Berlin Sinfonietta.

We are happy to collaborate for the first time with the Chief Conductor of the Berliner Symphoniker, Maestro Lior Shambadal. Maestro Shambadal, born in 1950, is a very sought after conductor with a long international career as an opera and concerts conductor, and as a teacher who gives several masterclasses for condcutors each year.

Besides intensive active conducting sessions with a professional orchestra, each one of the participants will have the chance to work with Mr. Shambadal on critical aspects of conducting including studying the score, musical analysis, conducting technique and string technique. We will have four orchestra rehearsals (4 hours long each) with the professional musicians of the Berlin Sinfonietta.  All the participants will have the chance to perform in the final, public concert.

In this masterclass we will focus exclusively on symphonies by Ludwig van Beethoven.  It will be a unique chance to spend a week with a professional orchestra and Maestro Shambadal, and to go into the depths of this

These pieces are a great challenge in many aspects, even for experienced conductors and orchestras. Working in details with Maestro Shambadal on the musical and technical issues during the orchestra rehearsals, and the preparations for the final concert, will contribute a lot for the conducting and rehearsing skills of the participants of this masterclass.symphonic giant.The course will be taught primarily in English, and secondarily in German.
