Nordic Baltic Chamber Orchestra

Nordic-Baltic chamber orchestra Accademia Baltica was an intensive course under the NordClassic network.

Third session: Embodied chamber music – a new methodology?
27 January - 5 Feburary 2023, Danish National Academy of Music, Odense

The students were introduced to playing by heart and performing a choreography suitable for the pieces as well as methods for improvising. The participants examined the performance as a journey of recognition - including the relationship between individual and collective interactions. The purpose was to contribute to the development of a field of practice within chamber music, which adds to the many facets of being a musician.

Second session: Beethoven and the Baltics
October 2019

The repertoire of Beethoven and the Baltics concentrated on baroque, classic and contemporary music, allowing the participating students to master several important skills of a professional musician not possible to acquire during regular studies. The project included a real tour with concerts in Riga, Vilnius, Tallinn, Helsinki and St. Petersburg.
