The 2016 class was our 16th international masterclass and the 8th in Radom. With ten participants from nine different countries we had a great week exploring some key masterpieces and developing skills, supported as always with great skill, dedication and friendly patience from the musicians of Radom Chamber Orchestra.
As always we had a professional photographer on hand and there is a gallery with a few of our favourites from more than 800 images here.
The concert programme was our most demanding yet – three pieces from Grieg’s Peer Gynt, Beethoven’s Emperor concerto and Schubert’s Death and the Maiden. You can judge the results below:

Feedback from the participants
CA Radom should be a must for all conductors of any level.
This course is about real conducting. It is about how real conducting works. This is a course for people who want their music to be the best it can possibly be – for the orchestra, for the composer, for the audience and for themselves. This course is about what really works and is taught by someone for whom it really does.
This class truly gives you something to think about for a long time.
As my priority is very much the teaching and orchestra quality the overall value is high.
I really cannot believe how much I didn’t know before I came here.
What we learn here goes beyond what most people consider possible.
I have never seen another masterclass where participants made noticeable progress.
It is hard to say exactly how much one develops during the week, but it is the understanding and hence the practice during the year that becomes very meaningful and valuable. I am not sure I actually had an excellent progress during the class but the experience was excellent.
