Aldeburgh Strings - Britten Weekend

Markus Däunert (director/leader)

Britten, Vaughan Williams and Shostakovich.

After its sensational debut at the 2010 Britten Weekend, Aldeburgh’s unique string ensemble reconvenes with a stellar group of international tutors in the dual role of teachers and performers.

Markus Däunert is the former co-leader of Mahler Chamber Orchestra and founding Member of MCO. He is also a member of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, guest-leader of Gewandhaus orchestra and Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

This is an unrivalled opportunity for outstanding recent BPP string players to work intensively alongside some of Europe’s leading orchestral principals on some of the most challenging and inspiring music in the repertoire.

No course fees. Flights, accommodation and food costs covered for all participants

Concert 20-21 October in Snape Maltings Concert Hall
