Dear course participants,

This year -for the first time- we are going to extend the scope of our  course include to an additional instrument. Christian Bakanic will offer a special course for accordion players. In recent years the duo of clarinet and accordion has been increasingly established on the scene and so we  would like to provide a platform to this particular line-up.
We'd be very pleased if young ensembles who wish to study and expand the repertoire and players who want to start an ensemble would attend this year's course. We'll try some new approaches and will bring a lot of new literature to Hartberg.
In the past years students were very enthusiastic about our preparations for and simulations of auditioning. So we'll continue with that.

Playing the clarinet is a holistic body experience and therefore we pay a lot of attention to the combination of breathing, posture and movement.

I'd like to use this preface to stress again how pleased we are about each participant who is interested in making progress on his or her intstrument and who would like to get to know new facets of the clarinet.

There is no other course in Europe for clarinettists which covers such a wide spectrum  of themes relevant to this instrument: solo literature, clarinet chamber music, jazz improvisation, breathing techniques, technical problems concerning the instrument itself, arranging, music management, auditioning ...

We look forward to your visit and attendance of the 2019 edition of Hartberg’s ClariArte!
