Fondazione “Gustav Mahler Musica e Gioventù”

Fondazione “Gustav Mahler Musica e Gioventù” was founded in 1999 at the initiative of Maestro Claudio Abbado and is the result of long years of close collaboration between the city of Bolzano and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester. Every year the Foundation conducts master classes for advanced young musicians from all over Europe. The teaching- staff of the courses consist of international renowned professors. The courses include individual lessons, chamber music in collaboration with the faculty, as well as an orchestra concert together with the teachers. The master classes are reserved for young musicians between the ages of 18 and 26 (for string players) and between the ages of 18 and 27 (for wind players), who have successfully passed an audition for the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester or distinguished themselves through other outstanding artistic achievements or examinations.
