Matinée Concert — International Menuhin Music Academy
The International Menuhin Music Academy (IMMA) was founded by Yehudi Menuhin in 1977 “to ensure that the great heritage of violin mastery is passed to the next generation.” It is a nonprofit organization that provides exceptional young string players from all over the world a 3-year scholarship. For almost 40 years, the academy has been training violinists, violists, and cellists from all over the world, with the help and guidance of past professors such as Menuhin himself and Alberto Lysy. Today it has become one of the world’s most renowned Swiss music institutions with their base at Le Rosey, near Geneva. In this Sunday Matinée concert, members of the International Menuhin Music Academy will be playing Max Bruch’s String Octet op. posth., and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy’s String Octet in E flat major op. 20.
Tickets are CHF 56-78.
