All sessions take place through MIPFA Videoconference System, an exclusive software specially developed for online music lessons.
In this Seminar with Ilya Itin, the group will extensively work on the interpretation, analysis and practice techniques of Rachmaninoff's piano repertoire —Sonatas, études, preludes, romances and symphonic works with piano.
The repertoire to be presented by participants in this Seminar will be limited to works by the Russian composer, since the topic of the event will aim to dig deep into different approaches to the composer writings.
