St. PCP International Masterclass
“Conducting Shostakovich”
with Alexander Polyanichko
February, 9-13 2015

The St. PCP welcomes back to its distinguished list of guest masterclass teachers, the internationally renowned conductor and teacher Alexander Polyanichko. Widely known for his masterful interpretation of the Russian literature, this class represents a rare opportunity for 10 young conductors from all over the world to study two musical pillars of the repertoire by Shostakovich.

Four days of classes and a final concert, February 9 through 13, 2015. In order to maximize podium time, the class is limited to only 10 advanced participants (and up to 4 observers) who will be invited to work with Maestro Polyanichko. The workshop will include score study sessions, conducting sessions with two pianos, conducting sessions with the orchestra, and a final concert. All sessions will be videotaped. The students of the class (at Maestro Polyanichko’s discretion) will be featured on the final concert as part of the St. Petersburg Chamber Philharmonic’s 2014-2015 concert season. Each participant will receive significant podium time with two pianos and with the orchestra, as well as a certificate of participation.
