Workshop giovanile europeo
dedicato alla prassi musicale veneziana
del Seicento e Settecento

Intuizione, invenzione e virtuosismo abbinati all’energia giovanile e ad una gioia esuberante di suonare ed esibirsi rende irresistibile questo format dedicato alla musica barocca.

Il progetto Junges Musikpodium è riuscito a dare nuova linfa ai legami storico-culturali tra Dresda e Venezia, rileggendoli alla luce dei tempi moderni e del rinato interesse per la prassi esecutiva barocca.




“The JMP was my ever first project in a chamber orchestra and especially baroque chamber music. The people playing there had so much fun and joy playing this music, that all of us got completely catched and I was always so excited and couldn’t wait for the next project!  We also got to see the most beautiful places in Italy and the whole environment was the combination of meeting amazing people and playing music together on a very high level.”

Konzertmeister der Violoncelli in der Sächsischen Staatskapelle Dresden

"I’m so thankful for being part of JMP in 2007/2008/2009. I got the tools to learn coloraturas faster, the variety of creating coloraturas, their dynamic and developing my Italian pronunciation. Most of all I highly appreciated our beautiful concertplaces in Venice, Roma etc. and their hospitable people."

“As my first youth orchestra project, JMP has been a milestone in my musical formation and the first time that I had the occasion to play outside of my country. The way we worked together, the implication of everyone and the trust that our coaches placed in us have definitely built my vision of what being a professional musician should be: sharing, trusting each other and making unforgettable concerts!"

"Thanks to the Junges Musikpodium Project, I got the chance to play the wonderfull repertoire of the Venetian baroque time and to learn about how it influenced other musicians all over Europe. Like it was in the XVIII, now through the JMP project, young musicians from Italy and Germany have the opportunity to make music together sharing their cultures. For me this cultural exchange has been incredibly interesting and I am still in contact with some of the colleagues from Dresden. Working with Stefano Montanari and the Junges Musikpodium it has been one of the main reasons why I chose to pursue the life of a baroque musician.”

"Am Jungen Musikpodium Dresden–Venedig habe ich 2007 teilgenommen, im Sommer direkt nach meinem Abitur am Sächsischen Landesgymnasium für Musik in Dresden. Die Schulzeit war vorbei und ich sah mich nun vor die Entscheidung gestellt, ob ich mit der Aufnahme eines Gesangsstudiums einen wichtigen Schritt in die musikalische Professionalität wagen sollte. In dieser Phase begegneten mir beim Jungen Musikpodium – besonders in Gestalt von Stefano Montanari und Ivano Zanenghi – eine derart mitreißende Musizierfreude, eine gelassene Virtuosität und ein profundes Wissen über die italienische Barockmusik. Ich habe in dieser intensiven Workshop-Woche vielleicht zum ersten Mal eine Ahnung davon bekommen, dass so etwas wie eine freie Szene der Alten Musik existiert und dass diese künstlerische Epoche genug Material bereithält, um sich ein Musikerleben lang damit zu beschäftigen, ohne dass es jemals langweilig werden würde.

Inzwischen bin ich als Gesangssolist in ganz Europa und weltweit tätig und darf mit den namhaften Ensembles der Alten Musik zusammenarbeiten. Und auch das Junge Musikpodium hat seinen Anteil an dieser Entwicklung gehabt. Dafür bin ich allen, die zum Gelingen dieser musikalischen Initiative beigetragen haben und immer noch beitragen, von Herzen dankbar!"

"Podio is sharing music, emotions and life experiences. The group we got is a new music family guide by amazing and competent musicians. I suggest this experience to everyone who wants to go deeply in the colours of music and to work really hard!"
