Yesterday at the MECMA: Flute Concerto with Maxim Rubtsov

Yesterday's edition of the MEMCA saw, in addition to the masterclasses and lessons delivered by top professors, a daytime concert featuring the Russian National Orchestra's Principal Flautist, Maxim Rubtsov. 

As part of the EUFSC and SAMIT’s efforts to promote high quality musical education, this year’s edition of InClassica is also incorporating the inaugural edition of the Middle East Classical Music Academy (MECMA), taking place from the 4th to the 23rd of September. This educational initiative features three weeks of lectures, discussions and masterclasses in the schools of piano, wind, and strings, led by a roster of international professors and music pedagogues consisting of some of the most illustrious names active today. In addition, the MECMA is also presenting a series of daytime concerts featuring soloists, orchestras, and prodigies from all around the world, with select Academy students being offered the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of joining these artists in live performance on stage.

Quotes from Professors:

- “In general, I really like teaching. I taught at the Academy of Music in Basel for 35 years, and since then I have always been happy to share my experience with my young colleagues. I really liked my students of the MECMA, it was very interesting to work with them. They have a really high level. This means that they learn from excellent teachers, and I am glad that they use every opportunity to learn” — Rudolf Buchbinder

Daytime concert: Flute Concerto

- "It is always with great pleasure that I get acquainted with new collectives. I have heard a lot about the Kaliningrad Philharmonic Orchestra, but this is the first time I am leading it. The musicians are responsive, I know that they have a very busy schedule within the Academy — many concerts with different programmes and soloists, including with young participants. But despite this, in a short time they prepared all the pieces that are announced in the playbill, not only of the classical repertoire, but also of the modern composer Alexey Shor. I have only positive emotions from being here."
