2014 Theme: The Exuberance of Youth

This year's theme will be The Exuberance of Youth. We will focus on those precocious composers who offered so many remarkable ideas in spite of their tender years. Schubert, Mendelssohn and Beethoven figure prominently in the mix with other outlying composers, such as Arriaga, the "Spanish Mozart," amongst others, to fill out the program. We hope to explore that "youth" does not belong only to the young, but can be a state of mind enjoyed throughout ones life that demonstrates qualities of fearlessness, daring, cockiness, wonder, energy and the unparalleled joy of discovering something for the very first time. Repertoire for the Multiple Ensembles, the Faculty Concerts, and the Organized Ensembles will reflect to some degree the possibilities of seeing familiar and unfamiliar pieces with a fresh, youthful outlook. In keeping with this year's theme, an emerging artist quartet in-residence will also join us. 

Theme based repertoire:
Multiple Ensemble I      Beethoven String Quartet in A minor, Op. 132
Multiple Ensemble II     Early Schubert String Quartets

For more than sixty years, adult musicians have come to Interlochen to read, play and polish great works of chamber music together. Chamber musicians from around the world immerse themselves in a week of instruction and performances with a faculty of leading string, keyboard and woodwind musicians. A variety of class options provide an enriching and flexible experience to all participants, including daily reading pairings or intensive study. The Chamber Concert Series features daily performances with the Enso String Quartet and notable faculty members from leading university musical instrument performance programs.

Piano Duet and Two-Piano participants will have an opportunity to perform in master classes, individually coached sessions and to learn about piano ensemble technique and repertoire.

You may choose one of the following tracks:
“Horizons,” our traditional organized ensemble experience with exposure to a variety of repertoire and ensemble pairings.

“Polestar,” a more intensive study experience allowing a group to focus on a more limited amount of repertoire covered in greater detail. “Polestar” is ideal for pre-formed groups and those individuals who wish to work with one group in a more intense exploration and refining of a piece. Individuals opting for this track will be matched with players of similar experience and interest at the beginning of the week.
