25 years TIHMS

Since 1988 lessons and master classes in combination with stage experience form the core of The International Holland Music Sessions (TIHMS).
During the Summer Academy a new generation of soloists is intensively supervised and coached by internationally renowned musicians and pedagogues. The classes, together with the public concerts taking place during the Summer Academy, may be the first step toward an invitation to perform in prestigious concert halls in the Netherlands as well as around the world.

New Masters on Tour 2014-2015

During the concert season 2014-2015 we offer our new New Masters on Tour series with five concerts. These concerts will take place in Amsterdam (Recital Hall) and will be repeated in Zwolle (Theater Odeon).
We selected great young musicians for you again!

Summer Academy 2014

104 summer concerts (and masterclasses)

About 104 summer concerts are presented by young musicians from all over the world, in the period July 13 until August 17. See the page concerts or refer to our agenda.

Masterclasses take place in the afternoon in the Remonstrantse Kerk in Alkmaar. This gives you the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of the education, or coaching, of young talented musicians by a world famous faculty, often prominent musicians on the concert stage themselves.

A piano trio, the Ludus Piano Trio is participating, and concertizing this year. In the years to come, TIHMS will stimulate the participation of piano trios and even piano quartets.

New page: This year an overview can be seen of all participants, with a short bio (in dutch..) and sometimes a photo. You will find that page here.

Ludwig van Beethoven: Sonate voor cello en piano in D gr. t., opus 102 nr. 2

Sergej Prokofjev: Sonate voor cello en piano in C gr. t., opus 119

De Japanse pianist Tomoaki Yoshida verklaart de band tussen Liszt en Debussy op het fundament van Mozart. Toen Franz Liszt in 1885 aanschoof voor een diner in Villa Medici in Rome was daar ook een jongeman: Claude Debussy. Debussy had net de Prix de Rome gewonnen en Liszt uitte zijn waardering door Au bord d’une source voor de jonge componist te spelen. Een jarenlange wederzijdse waardering was het gevolg. Ook Het Hongaarse cello/pianoduo Ildikó Szabó en István Lajkó leggen een verrassende historische ‘relatie’ bloot. Want hoewel Beethoven en Prokofjev elkaar nimmer gekend hebben is Beethoven wel degelijk van invloed geweest op de Russische ‘formalist’. Twee spannende liaisons.
