The advanced course in viola has a minimum duration of two years.
The course is intended to help students extend their knowledge of the repertoire of their instrument, thus giving them a solid basis on which to build a professional career, as teachers or performers. The annual study pathway includes the study of repertoire for:
- solo performance
- chamber music
- orchestra performance
The course also includes the study of excerpts for orchestra and training for professional orchestra work. The total number of lessons for the academic year is 8. Students will have one lesson per month, from October to May. A collaborative pianist Stefano Musso will also be present at the lessons.
To apply for admission candidates must be no older than 30, in possession of a Conservatorio Diploma (old system), a Level 1 or Level 2 degree or equivalent qualification from a country other than Italy. The commission reserves the right to accept any student who shows exceptional talent, even though they do not meet the above-mentioned requirements.
Applications for Academic Year 2023/2024 must reach our offices by 26 May 2023. Any applications sent after the deadline will be evaluated by the Directors of Studies.
The admission exams will take place in presence on 26 June 2023.
If the pandemic evolution and the future rules make impossible for the Accademia to hold the exams in presence, the selections will take place by sending a video containing the required programme.
Students resident outside Italy, who want to make the entrance exam to the courses of the Accademia, can choose to make the exam in presence or sending a performance video; in this last case the video must be sent together with the application form.
The entrance exam will consist of the performance of a programme that includes at least two pieces in different styles.
