Accompanist Eugene Asti will be attending the prestigious Franz-Schubert-Institut in Baden Wei Wien, Austria as guest teacher for a series of masterclasses from 7-9 August. The Institut sponsors a five-week summer course of in depth study with leading interpreters of the Lied repertoire with the purpose of “furthering and cultivating the art of the German Lied”. This master course has, since its establishment in 1978 been widely regarded as the finest of its kind, which is largely due to its high artistic standard, the unique structure of the course “Poetry and Performance of the German Lied”, together with its unrivalled guest faculty. Some of the other teachers this summer include Elly Ameling, Rudolf Jansen, Robert Holl, Werner Güra, Julius Drake, Helmut Deutsch and Andreas Schmidt so Eugene will be joining a very distinguished line-up.
