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!

Over a hundred summer concerts (and masterclasses)

A large number of concerts are planned in the summer period in which young musicians from all over the world will perform. The centre of the concerts is Bergen NH (Ruïnekerk) and Alkmaar (Remonstrantse Kerk), but concerts are organised in various other cities in the Netherlands.

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.

De Roemeense pianiste Alexandra Dariescu en de in Zwitserland geboren violiste Ju-Ni Lee zijn hard op weg invloedrijke stemmen in de wereld van de klassieke muziek te worden. Dariescu won in 2013 in Engeland al de prestigieuze Woman of the Future Award en liet daarmee vrouwen in disciplines als toneel en film achter zich. Ju-Ni Lee is op haar beurt al de Anne-Sophie Mutter van het Verre Oosten genoemd. De twee musici laten ieder een recitalhelft lang horen waarom niemand ze mag missen. Dariescu speelt naast Beethoven onder anderen Schumann en Chopin en ook Lee waagt zich met pianiste Jung-Eun Kim aan Beethoven met de gloedvolle Sonate op. 96.
