Special courses – Bojan Cvetrežnik – TRAINING FOR VIOLIN TEACHERS

When: 4–6 March 2016

Where: Rimska cesta 2b, Ljubljana

Slovenska verzija

Who: 

Bojan Cvetrežnik studied classical music. He obtained his degree in viola performance in the class of prof. Mile Kosi and improved his knowledge in Klagenfurt and Berlin as well as on master classes (with Helfried Fister, Kim Kashkashian, Diemut Poppen, Tabea Zimmermann, Laszlo Barshony, Carol Rodland, Hartmud Rhode, Mathias Buchholz). He started his professional career in classical music as professor of viola and chamber music at the Maribor Music Conservatory, as well as a viola soloist with the Opera Orchestra in Ljubljana. The curiosity of the unknown and his innovative spirit soon led him to exploring various musical styles, learning other stringed instruments and composing his own music, from simple songs to scores for symphonic orchestras. He played with numerous big names of various musical styles, such as Vinko Globokar, Vladko Stefanovski, Neil Innes, Arvid Engegård, Renato Chicco, Simone Zanchini… He worked as production manager of the RTV Slovenia Symphonic Orchestra and the Jenaer Philharmonie. He was a member of the Terrafolk music group when they received the BBC World Music Award, and worked as a violinist soloist in the Canadian artistic theatre Cirque du Soleil. In 2005, he founded the ONE Music Society, committed to the equality of diverse musical expressions. In 2006, he founded the Symbolic Orchestra which brings together over 100 musicians from all over Europe and performs music in extremely diverse cultural environments. Since 2010, he has been intensively working in education of both beginners and professionals as a visiting lecturer but also within the Godalkanje programmes. He teaches elementary classes of violin in the fourth grade of the Waldorf Elementary School. When designing his methodology, he finds the biggest inspiration in self-taught musicians. He invented playful approaches to understanding musical theory, such as ‘Singing Ludo’, ‘Singing Bingo’, tablet applications and other puzzles. He likes to say: “I can only talk seriously to those who understand jokes.”

What:

TRAINING FOR VIOLIN TEACHERS

Understanding and actions in the first learning period, prior to reading notes.

Playing without notes does not mean excluding music theory. Understanding music theory allows self-taught musicians to perform music they acquired by ear on various instruments with a melodic, bass, harmonic or rhythmic role. With my students, we perform the technical placement on the violin consistently with very clear metaphors. Children are able to self-assess the correctness of a particular layout or technique and can thus seek the most suitable way for them to a relaxed play and a good listening control.

Which goals are more effectively achieved in individual, and which in group classes? I do not want to name my work as a new method, because harmful specifications are needed when defining and marketing methods. I wish teachers were flexible enough to be able to quickly write an etude or an exercise for their students, and not only use centuries-old exercises written by the best teachers of the time and intended for their disciples. This said, it is necessary to have clearly defined priorities. I put a strong emphasis on the child’s musical taste, immediate performances and the integration of music in their everyday life and other activities. You are invited to come meet swimming pools, jumpers, swimmers, airports, mountains, lowland, highways, wheels, fish, balloons and so many other fun accessories!

ROMANIAN VIOLIN

Tunes and technical specificities of violin playing in Romania.

The Romanian musical tradition is made up of several different regional styles. Transylvania gathers one of the richest heritages in the region, with its historical admixture of Hungarian, Romanian, Jewish, Roma (gipsy) and German traditions.

We will study traditional tunes from Transylvania with different dance rhythms and specific phrasings, bows strokes and ornaments. We will also learn accompaniment and secondary voices.

Required level:

Good technical knowledge of the instrument. Acquisition “by ear” and not only by reading.

Special courses – Zoltán Lantos – INDIA TO JAZZ

Where: Rimska cesta 2b, Ljubljana

 

Slovenska verzija

 

Who:

Zoltán Lantos appeared on the European jazz scene while studying at the Music Academy in his hometown, Budapest. Drawn to experimental and Eastern music, he traveled to India in 1985 to study Indian classical music.

In 1994, after 9 years of studying, traveling, teaching, and performing in India, Lantos returned to Europe. Through violin improvisation and composing, he began rediscovering his musical roots. He found his musical language by blending Hungarian and classical traditions with Eastern music and contemporary European jazz. Over the years, Lantos’ musical voyage has brought him together with artists like Ramesh Shotham, Charlie Mariano, Dhafer Youssef, Rabih Abou-Khalil, Loreena McKennitt, Larry Corryell, Steve Coleman, George Brooks,Trilok Gurtu, Eivind Aarset, Nils Petter Molvaer and many others.

Zoltán Lantos plays a custom-built 5 string violin and a 5+16 sympathetic string violin, enhanced by using electronics and live sampling.

 

What:

INDIA TO JAZZ

Solo-violin compositions and improvisations, even using my voice, live electronics and loopers, floating and drifting in a constantly evolving multidimensional sonic universe of my own, which reflects the spirituality and depth of Indian and other Eastern music, the vibrant dance of folk music, the complexity of contemporary jazz, the intellectuality of classical music, the ambiance and the pulse of electronic grooves… in a minimalistic, experimental and free spirited fashion, with deep respect to the masters who helped and influenced me.
