  • Master classes in the quartet’s chosen repertoire

  • Chamber music together with the instructors (including piano quintets, string quintets and clarinet quintets).

  • Chamber Orchestra comprised of the academy quartets under the leadership of Gábor Takács-Nagy.

  • The Academy is held during the Trondheim Chamber Music Festival.


The Academy musicians have free entry to the festival’s concerts (on the condition that the concert is not sold out). The Festival Composer for 2008 will be Rolf Wallin.

The final program for works to be played with the instructors will be announced after the academy quartets have been chosen. The Academy’s closing concert on Sunday 28 September will take place as part of the Trondheim Chamber Music Festival. One or more quartets will be selected by the instructors to directly qualify for the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition (TICC) 2009. TICA offers free lodging as well as breakfast and one hot meal a day. In cooperation with Jeunesses Musicales Norway we will assist to apply for funds to cover travel costs.

The application deadline is 25 April 2008. Application form can be downloaded at the TICA website.

Candidates will be selected on the basis of live recordings and references. The selection committee’s decision is final. The applicants will be informed of the selection results by mid May 2008.
