The Paris-based Métamorphoses Quartet, an ECMA ensemble and one of the groups taking part in the ECMAster programme

A new European masters programme for chamber musicians aims to give emerging ensembles the benefits of an international education as well as a professional advantage. The two-year European Chamber Music Master (ECMAster), which begins this October, has been developed by the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA), a network of European conservatoires, festivals and concert presenters that was established in 2004 to provide training and career-building opportunities for young ensembles. The ECMAster involves partner institutions in seven cities: Manchester, Paris, Vienna, Oslo, Vilnius, Fiesole and The Hague. Ensembles will study at their home institutions for semesters 1 and 4, and at two other partner institutions in semesters 2 and 3, with funding coming from the EU’s Erasmus+ programme. The first intake comprises four ensembles: the Karski Quartet, the Chaos Quartet, Trio Aralia and the Mestizo Saxophone Quartet.

About The Strad

We talk to the members of the Belcea Quartet and ask why more young people are turning to period performance. Students of Kató Havas pay tribute to the late violin teacher, and there’s a look at asymmetric instruments. Plus a Mendelssohn Masterclass and Renaud Capuçon’s Life Lessons.
