Masterclass 2018


Yanka Hékimova

6th-12th August 2018


The masterclass will take place on the organ – enlarged and renewed by Orgelbau Klais, Bonn (Germany) in the Chuch of Saint-Gabriel and on other instruments.

Works from the repertory and transcriptions will be studied, while constantly seeking to let hear the most clearly possible subtleties of the writing without ever losing sight of the general outline of the piece in order to build a coherent and expressive unit.

A detailed attention will be given to the development of the personality of each participant by stimulating his (her) imagination, by encouraging him (her) and by helping him (her) to work out his (her) interpretation of the pieces presented in harmony with his (her) own sensitivity.


Students embarking on a professional career, concert organists, music teachers as well as amateur organists (level allowing them to benefit from the course).
