Audite 2023

A unique opportunity

“An amazing chance to learn about real mastery!”

Maxim Vengerov – Patron

We want to open the mysteries of conducting mastery to all and have created the Audite 2023 programme to meet that goal.

We believe that this programme is a complete game-changer in the field of conducting masterclasses. We want to help real talent to develop, wherever it springs from so all tuition is provided free of charge. This means that Audite 2023 offers a fantastic chance to learn about the processes involved in high-level conducting and musical interpretation and enhance practical skills.

This programme is open to everyone from the keen student or amateur to those already making solid professional careers who are looking to reach their musical potential. It is a programme through which everyone can improve expertise within a process which is competitive and rewards those with the most advanced professional skills – but which still allows for active learning and participation right up to the final performances.

The only conditions for participating are a donation of at least £9.99 for the Stage 1 classes, plus a registration fee of £150 for those who choose to continue to Stage 2. All funds raised will be used for future CA projects.

All those who sign up for Stage 1 will get:

  • A week of amazing online classes with Jonathan Brett (17-21 April).
  • The chance to compete for an invitation to join our live classes in Budapest from 24 June to 1 July, featuring Jonathan Brett and the Solti Chamber Orchestra and working with key repertoire works by Mozart and Beethoven. Here you can learn at first hand about conducting masterworks with a leading pedagogue and a respected professional orchestra.

How to join

  1. Sign up with a donation of at least £9.99.
  2. Look out for the registration link in your email.
  3. Join the online classes.

That’s it!

How it works

  • Participation in the online classes at Stage 1 opens the chance to apply for the live classes in Budapest in June / July.
  • The application fee for the live classes is £150.
  • The best 24 applicants will be invited to conduct at the live classes. 9 of these will then be chosen to conduct the orchestra, of whom 3 will then perform at the final public class.
  • Those whose applications to conduct are unsuccessful are welcome to attend the classes and participate in the selection processes for the later stages.
  • To learn more, check the details.

Mastering Time

Like stage magic, conducting is an activity steeped in mystery – many see the results but the complexity of the processes means that it is one of perpetual learning. This series of presentations explores the component tasks, exposes some of the myths, analyses the challenges and examines the principles underlying the connection between gesture and high quality sound.

In the words of one of our past participants: "This is a course for people who want their music to be the best it can possibly be – for the orchestra, for the composer, for the audience and for themselves. This course is about what really works and is taught by someone for whom it really does."
