Workshop Vienna 2018
july 2nd - 8th
Welcome to "Workshop Vienna"!
We are Maria and Martin Ivanov and we are happy to be the organisers and hosts of the 5th edition of "Workshop Vienna!"
Following the idea to introduce young musicians to the viennese audience, we are glad to let you know that
the application is opened to participants from all over the world!
Workshop Vienna was held for the first time in the Fall of 2014 in Vienna, beginning on October 22 and ending a few days later.
Since then it's host has been the Bulgarian Cultural Institute "Haus Wittgenstein" in Vienna, where the opening concerts of the event, as well as all the lessons during it, take place.
Workshop Vienna began it's existence with 14 participants, who represented two of Bulgaria's most prestigious schools - National School for Music and Performing Arts "Dobrin Petkov" in Plovdiv, as well as National School of Arts "Prof. Vesselin Stoyanov" in Ruse.
After 2 days of working with violinist Maria Ramalchanova Ivanov and pianist Martin Ivanov, all the students performed in two separate concerts to close the first edition.
Having received great reviews from all the people, involved with it, Workshop Vienna returned a year later, where near the same amount of participants from the National Music School "Lyubomir Pipkov" in Sofia, as well as from other music institutions, applied.
The Workshop's 2015-2017 editions expanded and added two more young and successful musicians and teachers to the team - Zornitsa Ilarionova (violinist/Bulgaria) and Evgeny Genchev (pianist/Great Britain) in 2015; Iva Yablanska (violinist/Austria) and Ivan Donchev (pianist/Italy) in 2016 and Vira Zhuk (violinist/Austria) and Ivan Donchev (pianist/Italy) and has paid even more attention to spending time with the students and sharing musical ideas and advices.
