The European Quartet Academy is the most important educational-artistic event dedicated to the String Quartet in Italy. Founded by Piero Farulli, the Academy has trained the most famous quartets active today. It is linked by a long and solid collaboration with the European Chamber Music Academy, of which shares the didactic principles and pedagogical vision. The course in 2019-20 is based on the presence of teachers as Luc-Marie Aguera and Christophe Giovaninetti, both members of the Quatour Ysaÿe and Andrea Nannoni. Antonello Farulli will coordinate the course. The aim of the course is to intensely concentrate the work that the ensembles carry out with their professors at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole, rich with concert and promotional opportunities as well as support of the very life of these groups. One group among those enrolled will be chosen to represent the School in the ECMA sessions and several groups will be chosen to participate in the Summer session of the European Chamber Music Academy/ECMA. Concerts held at other institutions are also planned. At the professor’s discretion, the best students may be chosen to hold recitals during the year.
