St. PCP Seventh International Masterclass “Russian Masters and Musin Legacy” with Alexander Polishchuk and Sian Edwards, September 8 – 12, 2015.
St. PCP Seventh International Masterclass “Russian Masters and Musin Legacy” with Alexander
Polishchuk and Sian Edwards, September 8 – 12, 2015.
The St. PCP welcomes Sian Edwards, Head of Conducting at the Royal Academy of Music, to its
distinguished list of guest masterclass teachers, who will instruct alongside Rimsky-Korsakov
Conservatory’s Alexander Polishchuk. This class represents a rare opportunity for 8 young
conductors from all over the world to study three musical pillars of the repertoire by Shostakovich
and Stravinsky in the Cultural Capital of Russia. Students will learn in the Ilya Musin tradition with
both Edwards and Polishchuk, two of Musin’s most important former students and assistants.
Four days of classes and a final concert, September 8 – 12, 2015. In order to maximize podium
time, the class is limited to only 8 advanced participants (and up to 4 observers) who will be
invited to work with Maestros Edwards and Polishchuk. This is the smallest class size in the
history of the St. PCP workshops, and therefore affords the most podium time. The workshop will
include score study sessions, conducting sessions with two pianos, conducting sessions with the
orchestra, a special session for auditors and a final concert. The students of the class will be
featured on the final concert as part of the St. Petersburg Chamber Philharmonic’s 2015-2016
concert season. Each participant will receive significant podium time with two pianos and with the
orchestra, as well as a certificate of participation.
Shostakovich: Chamber Symphony for Strings in C Minor, Op. 110a
Stravinsky: Dumbarton Oaks
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 9
